1.5 Introduction to Glide and GVD

Although it is possible to develop programs using only the command line interface (gnatmake, etc.) a graphical Interactive Development Environment can make it easier for you to compose, navigate, and debug programs. This section describes the main features of Glide, the GNAT graphical IDE, and also shows how to use the basic commands in GVD, the GNU Visual Debugger. Additional information may be found in the on-line help for these tools.
