Andrew Cagney

Andrew Cagney thinks of himself as the Accidental Debugger Engineer. While working on various operating system ports and other projects he found himself being given the task of fixing and enhancing the debugging tools these projects use. For instance: adding a symbol table and a disassembler to the ChorusOS's embedded debugger; implementing the PSIM instruction simulator to aid the porting of NetBSD to the PowerPC; working on then maintaining GDB (adding MI, multi-arch, and proper unwinding), and designing Frysk (an O-O debugger toolkit).

Andrew is a member of the DWARF Workgroup and GDB Steering Committee.
