Re: Questions about GDB-MI Interface`


Yeah, there were a bunch of things I had to fix to get this to work (getting
breakpoint commands that continue the target not to fall over, for instance,
was a bit of a trick).  But it seems pretty solid now.  The only major thing
I have to fix is restructuring the startup sequence so that "run" commands
issued in the .gdbinit file work...

Most of the trouble that remains on our side is the result of the odd
interplay between Mach and BSD in Mac OS X.

This is another of the bits that we need to find time to disentangle from
everything else and submit.  Oh for those extra 5 or 6 hours per day!
