Hi All,


How do you use DDD in a multi-threaded real-time Linux application? Is DDD really capable of setting break points in multiple threads in a real-time situation? I could even live with removing the real-time condition but need a multi-threading debug capability. What compiler switches do I need to use and which ones to avoid?

In step 3 you said that did a "configure" and "make" but no "make install" after that.To install the compiled programs(ddd) you need to give the command "make install".

This will install the ddd binary in you /usr/local/bin.


Also to verify you ddd binary is build properly, after doing a make you can do a "make check".This creates a sample C++ program `cxxtest' and then runs DDD on it by invoking `./ddd cxxtest'.


Hope this helps.

I followed the directions to install DDD on your web site to their end:

  1. Unpack the DDD source distribution
  2. Change into the ddd-version subdirectory
  3. Type ./configure; make

and seemed to get a successful install.  I then went to your user manual and copied sample.c, compiled it, and typed ddd sample as instructed.  This is the message I get:


ddd: Command not found.


Evidently, my configuring and making ddd within the Downloads directory (there were no directions to move it elsewhere) is insufficient.  How do I make it so ddd is visible from any other directory where software to be debugged may reside?


I am on a Macbook Pro. OS X 10.5.4 (Intel).


The answer to this might be added to your instructions on the web site.




cheers, David.
