@CobaltVelvet Maybe use lldb instead? Less commands, so readable help output but still useful as a debugger.

@CobaltVelvet GDB is like the all-knowing oracle on the hill that will answer any question you have...

If you only know the right way to ask your question. Otherwise you will get something that looks like it almost could be an answer but is not.

@smallsees i mean yeah i get and appreciate that, but it would be great to have a tool that lets us solve problems quickly eventually

@CobaltVelvet oh I understand that pain.

I had this problem before; what was that command again? It was something with two letters and I think the second one was t.

Hmm nope not that one.

Maybe this command? OK I don't know what that is even telling me.

@CobaltVelvet I’ve been meaning to try gdbgui. It looks way easier than remembering all the commands and then figuring out what’s actually happening
