DDD—Data Display Debugger
ddd has more features than I have covered here; however, this article should give you a good start. It is refreshing to see Unix enter the modern era with graphical front ends which do not limit the user. When I first found ddd, I was quite impressed at its potential for novice Unix programmers. However, I also find myself firing it up quite often, even though I am a fully “qualified” Unix hacker with many gdb scars. The simplicity and elegance of ddd will make even the most die-hard shell fanatic roll over and accept it in many situations.
