Re: Sending signal to inferior program.
Thanks for the reply, but i'm still a little confused. Isn't what you said
the same thing as forking a thread from gdb which sends the signal. Instead
of CTRL-C, I want the signal to be sent from gdb to the prog. I want to
actually break the execution of the program at a specific time, so to send
the signal to the program at say 100ms.
