Scope Plugin
Scope is a graphical GDB front-end with the normal functions you would
expect (stepping, breakpoints...), and a few notable features:
- The comminication between Scope and gdb is asynchronous.
- You can enter any gdb command, at any time (of course, for the command to
be executed, gdb must be[come] available).
- All gdb I/O (along with some other messages) is displayed in a
terminal-like "Debug Console".
Whenever you find the GUI lacking, simply switch to that console and work
directly with gdb.
- 7-bit/Locale/UTF-8 support for values.
Geany 1.25 or later and the respective libraries, including VTE under *nix.
GLib-2.18 or later. For Windows, 2.24 is recommended.
GDB 7.3 or later.
win~1: XP or later.
GDB manual (recommended).
This plugin is part of the geany-plugins project.
See the README file of that package.
