Hello Maria,

Congratulations on your success at taking the reins of DDD.  I, of
course, do not know you and I do not your background.  I have abandon
ddd and started using gps for several reasons and I thought you might
like know those reasons.   We use gdb.  It is the only debugger on our
system and the only one we know of that is relatively robust and free.  

1.  I could not find out how to establish a working directory using ddd
and gdb.  By this I mean even if I chose the Change Working Directory
feature on the file menu and if I set the preferences on the Edit menu
so that the source and object files were correct, gdb did not look there
for most of my files.  

2.  I need more of an Interactive Development Environment and not just a
debugger.  I could not see how ddd provided that service.  Where gps is
an IDE.  Gps is very straight forward and obvious.  

Good Luck,

Hello, I am Jose Maria, the new offcial maintainer of DDD package. I am
having a look to the source and thinking about what could be the betters

plans for DDD and which could be the better way to do it.

One of the things I would like to do is to port DDD to Qt gui libraries.

Anyway, this is not trivial. First of all, DDD need a lot of work to
GUI from "logic".

I will inform all of you as soon as posible about the plans. Everybody
help of course and your feedback is very important.

The application is in C, so i would like to rewrite most of them to
moderm C++ 
and put QT over all. At the same time I think that a good pluggin system

could be really useful in this case.

Thanks a lot.
