Multi-processor debugger

KMD is a multi-processor debugger that can debug with hardware boards over serial ports or with software emulators (ARM and MIPS emulators are included in the project). Using the pipe option you can debug over the network or another communications medium. 'KMD' loads many executable formats, and displays and follows the original source even from multiple source file programs. It supports breakpoints and watchpoints which trap on specific data. The project uses 'chump' for disassembly and line assembly. Chump also lets new architectures be added easily without recompilation. Communication with the backend is done using two pipes/fifos using a simple set of codes. Back end communication program can be created using very little memory on the target device.
