The term "command line debugger" makes no sense to me. 

GDB is a full-fledged source level debugger which uses a command line
interface. Of course you can do _all_ source  level  debugging  using
just  GDB  without  any  of  the  frontends  that provide things like
graphical user interfaces. Usually you can do MORE things,  and  work
faster with plain GDB (assuming that you know your tools).

Best regards, and a Happy New Year!
