Since C and C++ are so closely related, many features of GDB apply to both languages. Whenever this is the case, we discuss those languages together.
The C++ debugging facilities are jointly implemented by the GNU C++
compiler and GDB. Therefore, to debug your C++ code
effectively, you must compile your C++ programs with the GNU C++
For best results when debugging C++ programs, use the stabs debugging
format. You can select that format explicitly with the
command-line options `-gstabs' or `-gstabs+'. See
section `Options for Debugging Your Program or GNU CC' in Using GNU CC, for more information.
