GDB is a source-level debugger for Ada, C, C++, Objective-C, Pascal and many other compiled languages. It can debug running processes on more than a dozen different processor architectures. It's itself ported to most BSD/ and GNU/Linux, Unix and Microsoft Windows systems.
strace is a diagnostic, debugging and instructional userspace utility for Linux. It is used to monitor and tamper with interactions between processes and the Linux kernel, which include system calls, signal deliveries, and changes of process state. The operation of strace is made possible by the kernel feature known as ptrace.
Fresh is advanced IDE for assembly programming with built-in FASM compiler and visual programming features. Fresh is designed especially for middle to big assembly project and has many source exploration, searching and cross reference features. The IDE itself is written in assembly language and is self-compilable. The project also contains portable programming library FreshLib that allows writing portable assembly applications. FreshLib supports Linux, Windows and KolibriOS, but easily can be ex
LLVM is a modular and reusable compiler toolchain. It's suitable for static and dynamic compilations of various programming languages, and based on its own target-abstracted intermediate code representation. Clang is its native C, C++ and Objective-C compiler, which provides additional static code analyzers. Dragonegg is a GNU CC parser binding. LLDB is an extensive debugger utilizing LLVMs JIT compiler, syntax tree or expression parser. lld a newly developed dynamic linker. And vmkit an impleme
VSCode is an extensible source code editor with support for a wide cross-section of programming languages and features for debugging, refactoring, code completion, Markdown previews, and Git integration. VSCode is a cross-platform project started by Microsoft and is based on the Electron framework, although it features an interface with very little visual clutter and is more responsive than many IDEs, even on low-end development machines.
Arcadia is a minimalistic editor (IDE) for the Ruby language written in Ruby using the classic Tcl/Tk GUI toolkit and developed with Arcadia itself. Some features include an editor with source browsing, syntax highlighting, and code completion, debug support, the ability to work on any platform where Ruby and Tcl-Tk work, a highly extensibility architecture, and support for RAD GUI building.
Pharo is a pure object-oriented programming language. It tightly integrates compiler, runtime and a modern IDE focused on being simple to use, provide immediate feedback and inline debugging. It implements a Smalltalk dialect with live objects, hot recompilation, full reflection, dynamic typing, direct inheritance, automated instance and memory management.
Eric is an IDE for Python and Ruby. Version 5 is based on Python2, Qt4 and Scintilla. It provides unlimited editor windows and layout, syntax checking and highlighting, autocompletion, calltips, folding, brace matching, spell checking, search and replace. It includes a class browser, various VCS interfaces, collaboration features, documentation helpers, and a remote debugger for Python and Ruby, unit testing, profiling and code coverage stats, and an interactive Python shell. Command-line filter
hbcxx uses the Unix #!/path/to/interpreter technique to make C++ (and C) source code directly executable. Modern C++, meaning C++11 or even C++14, feels like another language. This is not because the language has been changed massively but because the new features encourage a different, and slightly higher level way to think about writing C++. It's faster, more fun, supports lambdas, has tools to simplify memory management and includes regular expressions in the standard library. hbcxx is a to
Prophiler is a PHP runtime debugger and profiler. It manually hooks into application structures to visualize code flow and time consumption. Browser-style tabbed graphs ease performance introspection, and a specific PDO decorator can profile database calls even.
ELFIO is a header-only C++ library intended for reading and generating files in the ELF binary format
Cmajor is an experimental programming language. It mixes concepts and language semantics from C++ and C# for semantics. It runs on a virtual machine (cmx) after compilation (cmc), and comes with a debugger (cmxdump). It's itself implemented in C++98 using soul2cpp, provides 64bit integer types using boost, comes with filesystem, shared pointers and threading interfaces. It's cross-platform and comes with an extensive manual.
