Debugging R in Linux

All the years working in Linux I did not know how to debug in Linux. GDB is simply too scary for me... And now I needed to debug R. And you know what, it is that simple:

sudo apt-get install nemiver
./R -d nemiver

And that's it!

R starts under specified debugger. Debugger has all the necessary UI windows: registers, variables, call stack, breakpoints, source code and disassembly. And it is very simple to use.

I am officially a Linux programmer now. I know how to debug :)
