GDB dashboard

If you use GDB you definitely have to try Dashboard package by Andrea Cardaci.

Here is how it looks like:

^ Click to make it bigger.

Looks very nice, it updates itself each time when you step or do another action. It was confusing why Memory area is empty by default and shows nothing even when I try to x <memory>.

It turned out I have to tell dashboard to watch for particular area of memory. Here is how to do it:

dashboard memory watch <addr> <how many bytes>

for example:

dashboard memory watch $ebp 42

Now it looks awesome.
