Some devlopment tools and how to use them.

I'm not sure how helpful I can be but two development tools I use in linux are ddd and valgrind
DDD makes it easier to use gdb it is like a GUI frontend for it.
You might even find it compiled for windows under cygwin. If not I could try and compile it I'm good with getting things to compile.
valgrind however only works in linux it is so helpful for catching all of the most common pointer mistakes.
if you compile your code with the -gdb flag for gcc then valgrind and ddd can show you where problems lye.

thx,but I will have to stick to MSVC because the executable compiled from the latest cvs source with mingw no longer works for unknown reason.
