Using this information, I've been able to debug code using dbx and display the code from within Vim.

What would be really cool is if I could send commands (step, next, print, stop in ... etc) to dbx from within Vim. I am relatively new to Unix so do not know of any way to do this.

Does anyone know how to send commands to dbx in this way? For example, sending commands to dbx from a separate process, or running dbx as a server?


You can execute shell commands in vim using the command: :!foo -fooparam

You can insert the output of shell commands similarly using: :r!foo -fooparam
