Metrowerks debugger

Oh, how many fun days and nights I spent hunched over my PowerMac sporting a 15" CRT running BeOS, stepping through code in the Metrowerks debugger. I think the BDB was fairly similar on Intel. This looks sweet - very nostalgic for me.

I would have to admit that my memories of bdb on Intel mostly involve it crashing a lot. Didn't really experience the Metrowerks/PPC side of things myself. Glad you enjoyed that post in any case ;)

Because the PowerPC side of things leveraged the Metrowerks compilers, it was "kind of different" but the same. BDB looked an awful lot like the MW debugger from what I remember. I seem to recall that the later version of BDB was more stable than the one that came with R5, and you needed to download that from Be directly back in the day.
