When a new object file is read (for example, due to the
command, or because the inferior has loaded a shared library),
GDB will look for Guile support scripts in two ways:
objfile-gdb.scm and the
See Auto-loading extensions.
The auto-loading feature is useful for supplying application-specific debugging commands and scripts.
Auto-loading can be enabled or disabled, and the list of auto-loaded scripts can be printed.
set auto-load guile-scripts [on|off]
Enable or disable the auto-loading of Guile scripts.
show auto-load guile-scripts
Show whether auto-loading of Guile scripts is enabled or disabled.
info auto-load guile-scripts [regexp]
Print the list of all Guile scripts that GDB auto-loaded.
Also printed is the list of Guile scripts that were mentioned in
.debug_gdb_scripts section and were not found.
This is useful because their names are not printed when GDB
tries to load them and fails. There may be many of them, and printing
an error message for each one is problematic.
If regexp is supplied only Guile scripts with matching names are printed.
(gdb) info auto-load guile-scripts Loaded Script Yes scm-section-script.scm full name: /tmp/scm-section-script.scm No my-foo-pretty-printers.scm
When reading an auto-loaded file, GDB sets the
current objfile. This is available via the
procedure (see Objfiles In Guile). This can be useful for
registering objfile-specific pretty-printers.
