In chatting with someone working through the OverTheWire wargames, we're talking about debugger usage, and it occurred to me to wonder if ddd is still maintained.
Sadly not. Which is disappointing, and also, to me, surprising. I know all software projects have maintenance challenges. Especially unfunded projects. But for me, using ddd (when C programming) set the standard for what I expect from a debugger.
Chrome devtools is, these days, a fairly good debugger. (now that Chrome is one of the most popular programs in the world, and one of the biggest software companies in the world has been pushing people to develop for it for the last ten years).
PyCharm is the best Python debugger I've had the pleasure of using, and it's pretty decent too.
Neither of them has some of the useful features standard in ddd+gdb.
