This thesis presents the design and implementation of a distributed debugger. The debugger was designed to support the debugging of a system containing multiple processors from a single debug console. The debugger implementation consists of host software which runs on a VAX minicomputer and target software which runs on Intel SDK-86 single board computers. The host and targets communicate using an RS-232 channel. The debugger supports breakpoints, disassembly of target code, symbolic reference of program procedures and variables, and download of Intel Object Module Format binary files.
