insight

malaoba
Insight is a great GUI to GDB, but it is too old. the newest version is only 6.8-1,2009.
My gcc is 7.3, and the ELF file which is compiled by gcc 7.3  was not compatible with gdb 6.8.
I wonder  how does the Insight work correctly with the newer GDB?
THANKS!

Build from the repo. That's what Patrick and I do.

$ git clone git://sourceware.org/git/insight.git

Follow directions in the README.

The web page (https://sourceware.org/insight/downloads.php) seems to
have no mention of this repository.  The patch below applied to the
old cvs repository might fix this...

I dropped all reference to "nightly snapshots" as the last one is from
2009, I also dropped the paragraph about GDB support tools as it
didn't seem helpful.

Once upon a time I did have CVS write access for binutils and GDB, so
I have no idea if I would be able to commit this or not. Happy to try
if that would be helpful though.

Thanks,
Andrew
