    The Dev debugger is simply a interface to gdb. Gdb works on console. Itīs not friendly, but once that you learn how to use, itīs easy. There are few useful commands. You can debug some real programs with:
    break - set a line to stop
    next - goes to the next line
    step - goes to the next line too, but it goes inside called functions
    run - run the program
    print - print the content of a variable

    To use it just include the flag -ggdb at your g++ compiler.
    Of course that you can get good tutorials...
    Nothing more to tell about me...
    Happy day =)
