Gtk interface of DDD: Prototype now available!

Greetings to all DDD users - and a belated "blwyddyn newydd dda".

The DDD Subversion repository now contains a primitive prototype for a
Gtk interface to DDD. This can be found at
http://ddd.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/ddd/branches/gddd. It can be
built from the toplevel source directory like this (note the --with-gtk
configure option!):

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/gddd --with-gtk
make install

As prerequisites you need the packages libxml2, gtk2, libsigc++ 2.0 or
later, and gtkmm 2.4 or later. The executable will
be /usr/local/gddd/bin/ddd.

So far most of the obvious stuff is working. Most menus appear, "Open
Program" works, you can set breakpoints, start a program and
single-step. There are paned and separate window modes just like the
Motif version. The "Data Display" and other advanced features are yet to
be implemented. The alternative GUI targets "Motif" and "Gtk" are
presently distinguished in the source code by ugly #ifdef directives and
hacky macros: this stuff needs to be replaced by a tidier abstraction

Any and all 1337 Gtk hackers are welcome to check this out, test, and
submit patches.

Share and Enjoy,

Peter Wainwright
