Start your program, specifying anything that might affect its
Make your program stop on specified conditions.
Examine what has happened, when your program has stopped.
- Change things in your program, so you can experiment with correcting the effects of one bug and go on to learn about another.

Show the DDDconfiguration settings and exit.
Run the DBXdebugger as inferior debugger.
- --debugger name
Invoke the inferior debugger name. This is useful if you have
several debugger versions around, or if the inferior debugger cannot
be invoked as `gdb', `dbx', `xdb', `jdb',
`pydb', or `perl' respectively.
This option can also be used to pass options to the inferior debugger that would otherwise conflict withDDDoptions. For instance, to pass the option `-d directory' toXDB, use:
ddd --debugger "xdb -d directory"
If you use the `--debugger' option, be sure that the type of inferior debugger is specified as well. That is, use one of the options `--gdb', `--dbx', `--xdb', `--jdb', `--pydb', or `--perl' (unless the default setting works fine).
Run the GDBdebugger as inferior debugger.
- Give a list of frequently used options. Show options of the inferior debugger as well.
- --host [username@]hostname
- Invoke the inferior debugger directly on the remote host hostname. If username is given and the `--login' option is not used, use username as remote user name.
Run JDBas inferior debugger.
- Run Ladebug as inferior debugger.
- Run Perl as inferior debugger.
Run PYDBas inferior debugger.
- --rhost [username@]hostname
- Run the inferior debugger interactively on the remote host hostname. If username is given and the `--login' option is not used, use username as remote user name.
Show the interaction between DDDand the inferior debugger on standard error. This is useful for debuggingDDD. If `--trace' is not specified, this information is written into `$HOME/.ddd/log', such that you can also do a post-mortem debugging.
Show the DDDversion and exit.
Run the WDBdebugger as inferior debugger.
Run XDBas inferior debugger.
