"LLDB is a next generation, high-performance debugger. It is built as a set of reusable components which highly leverage existing libraries in the larger LLVM Project, such as the Clang expression parser and LLVM disassembler."

There is a new debugger in town. Developed by Apple for Mac OS X, it is now available on FreeBSD, Linux and Windows. We will take a brief look at LLDB's history and its modular design, delve into the commands with a comparison to GDB's commands, checkout the python interface and put it all to use to debug a program.

John moved to New Jersey when he joined the software development tools group at AT&T's Unix System Labs in the early 90's. He has been working on compilers, optimizers, debuggers, and performance tools since then.
