Description Doug Evans 2014-07-15 15:51:03 UTC
Currently "interrupt -a" is flagged as an error in all-stop mode.

-a is meaningless in all-stop mode.

As a user wanting to stop all threads I mightn't really care whether I'm in all-stop or non-stop.  Having to remember which one to use is annoying.

That'd be fine with me.
Comment 2 Tom Tromey 2022-06-08 15:28:07 UTC

    Allow 'interrupt -a' in all-stop mode
    PR gdb/17160 points out that "interrupt -a" errors in all-stop mode,
    but there's no good reason for this.  This patch removes the error.
