The TotalView debugger is a source-level debugger with a graphic user interface (based on the X Window System) and features for debugging distributed programs, multiprocess programs, and multithreaded programs. You need a workstation or terminal running the X Window System to use TotalView. TotalView is available on a number of different platforms.
filename specifies the name of an executable to be debugged. The name can be an absolute or relative pathname. The executable must be compiled with source line information (usually the -g compiler switch).
