For some time, in the release notes of the Intel Fortran Composer 2013, it is indicated that the Intel Debugger will be deprecated and using GDB is advised. However, compared to Intel Debugger, GDB is far inferior. For example, it cannot access allocatable arrays in a debugging session (please see bug http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=9395). And this is a bug open since 2007 without a fix but an ugly workaround. For one using a lot of allocatable variables in his code, debugging my Fortran program with GDB is like a nightmare for me. Does Intel have any plans to help fixing bugs of GDB that impedes its usability almost totally?
