"Motor is a great new IDE for programming under Linux. In this second part of the series, the author looks at more advanced issues including debugging using the gdb front-end, CVS and some of the new features in Motor 2.0."

"Currently, almost all the planned features of Motor have been implemented. Now, I want to address all the GNU programmers who have experience in programming with GTK+/GNOME. I realize that a lot of people work in X, so my next big plan is to make a GNOME-based GUI version of Motor. If you want to help me create a good IDE -- not only for console, but for X too, please contact me and we will work out a strategy together."

"Motor has a useful front-end to gdb, a popular Linux debugger. Let's check it out. Start by opening your favorite project to get a quick insight on what happens inside the program in run time. I assume you already have Motor running and you can see the editor window. For a quick look at all the debug commands available, just press F10 and then open the "Debug" sub-menu."
