GDB

https://www.gnu.org/software/gdb/
GDB lets you to see what is going on `inside' another program while it executes--or what another program was doing at the moment it crashed. GDB lets you start your program, specify anything that might affect its behavior, make it stop on specified conditions, examine what has happened when your program has stopped, and change things in it, so you can experiment with correcting the effects of one bug and go on to learn about another.

GDB 7.8 brings, among other things, Guile scripting support.
