Recently, I start to debug my Fortran code with GDB. There are so many command-line which employing them is difficult for me.

I want to know is there any graphical user interface (GUI) for GDB that works properly in Windows 64-bit?

My preference is to use GUI that Windows-friendly and has no difficulty with installation.

The Code::Blocks IDE is an Integrated Development Environment for C/C++ & FORTRAN it:

  • can work with a number of toolchains including the gcc toolchain
  • Has a GUI debugger that is a wrapper for GDB
  • Full breakpoints support:
    • Code breakpoints
    • Data breakpoints (read, write and read/write)
    • Breakpoint conditions (break only when an expression is true)
    • Breakpoint ignore counts (break only after certain number of hits)
    • Display local function symbols and arguments
  • User-defined watches (support for watching user-defined types through scripting)
  • Call stack
  • Disassembly
  • Custom memory dump
  • Switch between threads
  • View CPU registers
  • Is completely free, Gratis & Open Source
  • Can be extended through plug-ins
  • Runs on Windows, XP/Vista/7/8.x/10 both 64 bit & 32 bit
  • Runs on Linux 32 and 64-bit
  • Runs on Mac OS-X

Note that for full GUI debug support you will need to build your code with debug symbols and with optimisation turned off.
