Sun's steep price for the Sparcworks makes me wonder if there are any
competing commerical C++ programming environments out there that will
allow me to step through the code to debug it, similar to using
"gdb", but using object files produced by the Sun "CC" compiler.
I've been able to locate a Dr. Dobb's Journal article on ANSI C
compilers, but nothing on the C++ side.

Will "gdb" do this? I have not found any documentation that it does,
although I have heard that it will. In fact, I called up the FSF,
and the lady there said SHE thought it did, although I don't know if
she's a programmer. And even if it does, is it reliable? Good? Are
there other alternative solutions?

Please email me your responses. If there's good stuff, I'll edit the
replies and post them up in one coherent post. (If you are a
salesperson for the compiler, please state so in your letter!)

Thanks in advance!
