New Linux Debugger Takes on C++

Cristian Vlasceanu, a Romanian programmer who has worked for American companies such as RealNetworks and Amazon, has started his own debugger project in late 2003. He believes that existing debuggers for Linux are not adequate for C++ and that his approach of using state-of-the-art techniques such as C++ templates, code reuse, and design patterns is more effective. Cristian's project, Zero Debugger for Linux, is available for download and he encourages people to try it out. He also believes in the concept of 'free APIs, closed code' and has a 100k lines of code project at If you are interested in a code bundle or other forms of cooperation, contact Cristian through his website.
