I recently found the program: ltrace. And was wondering if it's possible to achieve the same using one of the gui debuggers for windows: ida, immunity, etc. The only thing I've found is a port of the cmdline util. Which is perfectly fine, but it would be convenient if I could do the same using, say ida.

Tldr; Trace library calls using a windows debugger/disassembler.

Thanks for the quick response and the examples. Got everything I needed.

ollydbg -> search for all intermodular calls -> in the new window -> set log break point radio button pause to never , log function argument to always ok

you should see all the lib functions breakpointed in pink
