Project Description


You’ll need GDB compiled with python support, and the pdbinject package:

easy_install pdbinject

OS X Notes

The default GDB does not come compiled with Python support.

Homebrew fixes that:

brew install gdb


There’s more steps, I gave up on figuring out how to make it work.


$ python example/ &
Process running with PID 6319

$ sudo pdbinject 6319
Remote PDB has been configured on port 4444

        nc 4444

$ nc 4444
> /home/ubuntu/pdbinject/pdbinject/>None
-> debugger.set_trace()

Now have some fun:

from guppy import hpy
hp = hpy()
heap = hp.heap()

To print the stacktrace across all the threads:

import sys, traceback
for thread_id, stack in sys._current_frames().iteritems(): print 'Thread id: %s\n%s' % (thread_id, ''.join(traceback.format_stack(stack)))
