When a program crashes, it is handy to have information about what happened just before the crash. This session presents a flight recorder for C and C++ programs that provides low-cost, "always on" instrumentation with a very simple, printf-like interface. This particular flight recorder also offers additional benefits such as tracing or real-time graphing of specific values in your program.

After this session, attendees should be able to add flight-recording capabilities to their project in a matter of hours, and use the provided tools to collect useful real-time information about the behaviour of their program.
