Debuggers are applications that help with debugging other applications. They usually allow setting breakpoints, running code step-by-step and showing backtraces.

note: some debuggers require you to include special files in the source codes, like bread drums they can follow. Others may require special compile time option(s), like the "-g" option when using gcc.
