What assembly-level dbuggers Are Available for PowerPC?  Is TMON officially dead and gone with the PowerPC?  I am aware of MacsBugs, but are there and other.  And, no I am not interested in Jasik stuff.

CodeWarrior (at least version 10 and up) comes with a very nice
debugger that works on both 68k and PPC. There's a GUI one where
you can easily switch between C/C++ (and I think Pascal) source code, and the matching assembly. Also there's one that takes over the whole screen and does only assembly, which has a straight-to-the-metal feel to it. (Gotta love it when you see 32 general-purpose registers. No more crappy 8 like on the Pentium. :-))

Still didn't hear the answer to my question:  Is TMON dead for power-PC?  Also, are you implying that the MWC debugger can be used independently of MWC apps like Macsbug and TMON (i.e., it sits in background and can be invoked via the debugger switch?)?

I'm afraid I don't know much about TMon. I only code Macs for work, and they just gave me the Codewarrior IDE. I like it a lot. Yes, both these debuggers sit in the background. There's a SysBreak() function you can call to drop into the debugger. I assume it's what's "standard." If you want I can check what it compiles to tomorrow.
