    Here comes the geekiest article of this year: a super-long and detailed tutorial on using the GNU Debugger (gdb) for analyzing problems in code execution, including compilation with symbols, reading sources, breakpoints, conditions, proc mappings, next, stepi, info commands, assembly dump, general advice, how to set and dump application cores, how to attach gdb to running processes, when to use gdb, about stack and memory management, and more. Take a deep breath, engage.

    You get real-life examples, null pointer, heap overloop, infinite loop, assembly, 35 screenshots of Rain Man code, have fun!
