Hi everyone,

after seeking for symbolic debuggers for D I noticed that there's a newer
version of WinDBG

http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/debugging/installx86.Mspx

I tried this one with the latest (D 2.0.3.7) DMD version and it worked!

http://digitalmars.com/d/2.0/windbg.html says that other versions of WinDBG
don't work
...so why don't pack this new version into the DMD .zip ?

The installer is 17Mb for one reason :-(

Hmm... but anyway a link to the Microsoft site would also be enough

I haven't tried it yet, but if it's better than the old thing; Yes, please! The poor state of debugging in D is IMHO one of the major roadblocks.

Bah. Real programmers don't need to debug their programs :)

I recall DDBG being pretty nice. Or isn't it maintained any longer?

ddbg is, indeed, very good, but last update to it was 2 years ago.

Is there a trick to getting it to work? I've tried to use it to debug DMD itself, but I only get a disassembly listing.

I've had great success with just using msvc 9, and this tool: http://www.dsource.org/projects/cv2pdb/wiki
