provides a graphical data display in which data structures are displayed as
graphs. A simple mouse click dereferences pointers or views structure contents.
Sources are available via FTP from
ftp://ftp.x.org/contrib/utilities/ddd-1.4d.tar.gz [4/96]; binaries (Sun, Linux,
and others) are available from
ftp://ftp.ips.cs.tu-bs.de/pub/local/softech/ddd/bin/ . See also
