Advanced Debugging – peering into the great unknown
This covers use of GDB features, both from the command line and the debugging UI – it also covers use of some common instruments to track down problems, and introduces ways to build your own custom instruments to provide meaningful data. One focus of attention will be on techniques to explore memory issues, leaks and allocation problems.
