I overheard a conversation in a class the other day about someone being able to "look" into various classes and data storage types and see what is being stored as you run the program.

I understand this can be done using the traditional ways of adding breakpoints and such, but the way the person was describing it seemed to be a lot more interactive. He mentioned "I can open a window for this class and monitor the data being stored in it". Does anyone know what he uses? I would have asked, but I haven't seen him again.

Thanks.

I've never seen any GUI apps that do it but GDB is an extremely powerful debugger, that might have been what he was using.

Sounds just like what the debugger in visual studio is capable of doing.

Yes, I think he was using a microsoft product. Do you have to have the studio or C++ express will do?

Thank you.

The Visual C++ Express debugger is fully functional.
