GDB is great if you have the sources of what you are trying to debug or at least the executable is compiled with debug symbols.

But what if you are trying to debug someone's else stripped application? Then GDB is not so great anymore, you have to type a lot just to disassemble a few instructions, set breakpoints or skip library functions.

What I would like to have is a text based debugger like IDA with tvision had for 32bit applications. Those were the good old days.
