What is cd b?

I need to know what is cd b,a Machine-Independent Debugger, in a complete computer newbie term. When I read the PDF documentations at

http://www.cs.princeton.edu/software/lcc/cdb/

I realize that it was not written for a webmaster but more a C programmer... well I know C, C++, Java but still... it looks extremely confusing.



If you know a better product than this one, I also really interested to know.

They are describing a program that someone there has written.  The program is named cdb. It seems to be a program that is designed to use in debugging programs written in the C language.  It appears to be intended for use on a UNIX or UNIX-like computer.

The MS products VC++ etc have build in debuggers that are designed for use with their programs.
Other development environments like Borland, Codewarrior, VxWorks have their own built in (or compatible) debuggers.

I don't think anyone could tell you a "better" product unless they are familiar with the compiler you want to use. (And you didn't say what it is.)

The reason why I am asking such question is because my boss think that this software is a debugger for the server.

Our servers are often crashing but we don't know what services is really responsible for the problem. Do you think this independent platform ANSI/ISO debugger will tell us in more details what services are responsible for crashing wihout decreasing too much the access time of the computer  (hundred of people access our computer everyday)?

Or is this program sound more like the MVC++ debugger?

It's like the MVC++ debugger, I don't think it would help you.

If you are running MS NT there should be tools under "Administrative tools" that would help you.

If you are running some type of UNIX derivative then there should be log files.

You might go to www.tucows.com and look
for maintainance tools fro the type of server you have.

After reading almost the entire PDF files, I think so too.

Thanks a lot.
