it's just another tool to make your job easier


And...AGAIN...I have used debuggers.

Used them for C#, C++ and Java. For years. And they do NOT make what I do significantly easier.

And in the difficult cases the do NOT help.

you just have to know how to use a debugger effectively


To be clear with 40+ years (and approaching) 50 and having used IDEs and debuggers for DECADES I can state that I do in fact know how to do exactly how to use them and do in fact know what features you are talking about and have in fact used them....

So if we can in fact move beyond the implicit denigration I can speak that for what I DO (not you and not others) between being able to actually figure out bugs by doing nothing at all (by just knowing how the flows work and what the code does where the problem lies), by looking at the code and by understanding how the flow works MOST problems that I encountered can be determined without a debugger.

And the problems that are most complex involve interactions which a debugger would NOT help UNLESS I already knew what the bug was.

I work with real-time systems every day,


And I do not. So YOUR mileage may vary.

Finally of course, as I originally pointed out, I have also used a command line debugger which is per the OP. And those are NOT easy to use. Certainly when I used them they didn't support complex debugging support and I suspect setting them up to do that would be extremely difficult.
