  SGI does not include edge with IRIX 5.x. When asked for substitutes,
  SGI will direct you to their CASEVision debugger, which costs extra.

  An oft-mentioned free graphical debugger is 'xdbx'; you can find the
  original source in ftp://ftp.x.org/R5contrib/, a patch to make it work
  on IRIX 4.0.x in
  ftp://viz.tamu.edu/pub/sgi/software/debug/ and patched
  versions for IRIX 4.0.x and 5.x in
  ftp://swedishchef.lerc.nasa.gov/programs/X/. An 'inst'-installable
  binary for IRIX 5.x only is in ftp://ftp.sgi.com/sgi/xdbx/.

  If you have 'gdb', you can try 'tgdb' and 'tgdb_wish', which may be
  FTPed from ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/devel/debuggers/ and
  ftp://ftp.aud.alcatel.com/tcl/code/ respectively.
