idb debugger has been replaced by
gdb-ia, which is a Terminal-based debugger.
For graphical Fortran debugging using
gfortran or Intel
ifort, you can use Photran, an Eclipse-based graphical Fortran debugger.
Install & configure Eclipse IDE for Intel Fortran debugging
The Eclipse version obtained via
apt install is usually much too old.
- Download/install the current Eclipse version. In this example, “Oxygen” (Eclipse 4.6) was used.
Extract and run the Eclipse installer (no sudo needed)
tar xf eclipse-inst-linux64.tar.gz ./eclipse-installer/eclipse-installer
- Select “Eclipse for Parallel Application Developers”. It will install into
be sure your
~/.bashrchas a line like
source /opt/intel/bin/compilervars.sh intel64
- Open a new Terminal, and typing
eclipseopens the Eclipse IDE.
- From Eclipse IDE, click Help>Install New Software
- in “work with” pick your currently installed version (here, Oxygen)
- Uncheck the “hide items that are already installed”
- Type “fortran” in the search box, and select under Programming Language > “Fortran Development Tools (Photran)” and “Linux Intel Fortran Compiler Support”
