Is there any tool available for debugging GLSL shaders?

I have nvidia geForce 940m GPU which doesn't support Nvidia NSight and RenderDoc is great but it doesn't support GLSL shader debugging. I am using windows 10.

    $\begingroup$ There's a list on the OpenGL page... khronos.org/opengl/wiki/Debugging_Tools $\endgroup$ – russ Dec 26 '16 at 8:04
  • $\begingroup$ Not sure about the quality of the various tools though, generally it's not up to the standard of the DirectX tools that ship with Visual Studio. I tried gDebugger on a project last year but it didn't work with compute shaders at all... $\endgroup$ – russ Dec 26 '16 at 8:06
  • $\begingroup$ That link helped. Thanks. Did you try CodeXL? $\endgroup$ – Ankit singh kushwah Dec 26 '16 at 8:10
  • $\begingroup$ Questions about debugging GLSL are on topic. Questions like this and this are fine. However, requests for off site resources (such as a debugging tool) are off topic here. You can ask for recommendations over on Software Recommendations but please read their on topic page first. $\endgroup$ – trichoplax Dec 26 '16 at 11:36
