Description: This is the (crippled) freeware edition of the IDA Pro debugger (see its own entry in the library for more info).

Differences from the commercial version is, among others:

* No remote debugging
* No Linux debugging (disassembling only)
* No other OS support at all (Mac OSX, WinCE)
* Only PE, COFF, OMF, ELF and Dos is supported (not NE)
* No console version (idaw.exe)
* Only x86 family processor module included (metapc)
* No x64 support at all
* Some FLIRT signatures are out-dated
* Fewer included plugins
* Difficulty identifying parameters in some cases (no PIT)
* Buggy WINE support
* Incompatible with plugins for commercial versions (plugins can be patched with another tool available in this library to work with the free version though!)
