Re: [cdt-dev] Question on future debugger interface

Hi all,

The open source Frysk debugger development team( is currently debating how best to integrate with the Eclipse CDT plugin. We have been discussing the pros and cons of the two different ways to interface: 1) have an API library such as libfrysk or 2) use the current wire protocol used by gdb/mi that is currently in use in the CDT. The Frysk team would very much appreciate the opinion(s) of the CDT developers as regards to which way they would prefer to see a debugger interface with the CDT and why. Which way would make it the easiest for developers to use? Thank you in advance for your time.

Thanks for the responses from everyone. They were very enlightening. I was surprised there were not some serious complaints about MI. It sounds like it is not a limiting factor for you right now. I will be taking a closer look at DSF and TCF protocols. If anybody has any links to information about those that I cannot easily find on the website I would appreciate it.
