Debuggers

The Intel® Debugger is included with the Intel® C++ Compiler, but installation is optional. The Intel Debugger (idb) includes an environment script, idbvars.sh, which you need to run before executing idb:

prompt>source /opt/intel_idb_80/bin/idbvars.sh

See the "Intel Debugger (IDB) Manual" (idb_debugger_manual.htm) for complete information on using the Intel Debugger.

You can also use the GNU Debugger (gdb) to debug programs compiled with the Intel C++ Compiler.
