Can NASM get a debugger?
« on: September 25, 2019, 08:39:28 AM »
Can the NASM distribution get a assembly language debugger too?
Searching around led me to http://ald.sourceforge.net/
Maybe the team can learn how ALD does it and build something of their own for NASM!

Hi  mayureshkathe,

Welcome to the forum.

I am only guessing, but I would guess that Nasm will not soon be seeing a "netwide" debugger. While Patrick's ALD is great for Linux and the BSDs, it won't do much for our dos/doze users who have not yet made the step up. :)

Unless you'd like to contribute something...

Best,
Frank

You can just compile your NASM programs w/ the `-g` flag, then use a debugger of your choice. I'm sure you're familiar w/ GDB, so there's a place to start.
