New LLVM Debugger Subproject Already Faster Than GDB

DLPierson It limits what your debugger can do (174 comments)

For simple manual stepping, etc. debugger speed is probably not that important. Have you ever tried to really use watchpoints? Given up after your program slowed to a crawl?

We had a debugger that could run many watchpoints at almost full program speed some time ago, see http://www.netilium.org/~mad/dtj/DTJ/DTJK07/ for details. The key point is that Parasight was fast enough to make tools like this useable.

I wish it had been here before I finally succumbed to curiosity and bought this piece of junk. It's really, truly awful. The worst excuse for a book I've bought in quite a while -- and I buy a lot of books.
