It's the GNU DeBugger.  Very helpful to figure out why your programs crash.

Someone (try the FAQ) wrote some simple intructions on it.  Basic idea is:

gdb bin/circle lib/core
p (variables here, such as buf, *ch, and such to print)

bt = backtrace of funtions called (with line numbers)
p = print

If you don't get cores, then just debug the program with gdb bin/circle and
then run.

If you run win95, then forget it (for the most part). :)
