Andy's comments on the sources:
"To build X-Debug you'll need Lattice C and a version of GenST that can do 680x0 instructions. The makefile and scripts in the zip are for a Unix-ish shell I used to use, whose name escapes me but it was Scandinavian."
Legal status:
"You can laugh at it, hack on it, do whatever you want." .
The following info is quoted from the description of X-Debug from FaST club website:
"X-Debug is an advanced debugger for the Atari range of computers. It is both a low-level debugger, showing memory dumps and register contents, and also a medium-level debugger, understanding about certain high-level languages and allowing source display single-step, and local variable access, for example. The best support is for Lattice C, as that is the only compiled language that outputs full debug information, but it also supports line-number debug (as created by HiSoft Basic and Devpac 3), and symbol-only debug (usable with virtually all ST compilers). Crucial to the whole debugger is the X-Debug language. This is a simple yet powerful script type language that allows complex operations to be built up from a sequence of standard operations. It supports a full expression evaluator, aliases, and procedures with parameters. It is also an important factor in customising the user interface, allowing specific commands to be attached to particular keypresses. X-Debug runs on STs and TTs with any monitor type. One megabyte of RAM is recommended, and TOS 1.4 or later avoids problems with larger programs. Written by Andy Pennell, the creater of MonST."
