Most debuggers are notoriously machine-dependent, but some recent research prototypes achieve varying degrees of machine-independence with novel designs. Cdb, a simple source-level debugger for C, is completely independent of its target architecture. This independence is achieved by embedding symbol tables and debugging code in the target program, which costs both time and space. This paper describes a revised design and implementation of cdb that reduces the space cost by nearly one-half anddoi:10.1002/(sici)1097-024x(199908)29:10<849::aid-spe260>3.3.co;2-k fatcat:oumdro2u35asxlnhwoyvxawlsa
