the name ebe?
Ebe is an integrated development designed to support Assembly
Language. After teaching assembly language one semester where the
students and I depended on using gdb for debugging, I wanted a better
solution. I tried ddd and a few IDEs, but they all suffered from
the fact that yasm doesn't provide data type information to gdb. I
started trying to write a debugger in python and decided dbe was a nice
name for a debugger. Since dbe had a source code window which
supported nearly all that was needed in an editor, it became apparent
that dbe was almost a development environment. So I decided to
expand it to be an IDE and I had to pick a name for a development
environment. The name ebe was too hard resist since it already
means extraterrestrial biological entity. But just to satisfy my
sense of fairness, I can claim that is stands for easy beginner
environment. This also explains the alien icon. I drew my
own alien icon based on what I have read of little green men. I
hope I haven't made an icon too much like something someone has
can ebe do?
In a nutshell ebe supports program development in C, C++, Fortran and
Assembly. It was designed to support Assembly and I needed to be
able to build programs with C functions, so C and C++ were
important. Adding Fortran was easy, so why not? The Qt
version of ebe runs on Linux, OS X and Windows.
