NetBSD Making Progress On LLDB Debugger Support

Written by Michael Larabel in BSD on 23 January 2017 at 07:36 AM EST. 1 Comment
Not only has FreeBSD been making progress with supporting LLDB as LLVM's debugger alternative to GDB, but the NetBSD project has also been making inroads with this open-source debugger.

NetBSD developers have been implementing the relevant interfaces needed for the LLVM debugger to effectively monitor and work on the operating system. As part of that they have also improved some of their own documentation, provided new ptrace interfaces, and more.

Those interested in LLDB and/or NetBSD can learn more about this debugging work via this blog post.
