Description Phil Muldoon 2009-10-19 10:30:03 UTC
Daniel Jacobowitz wrote about some Python/GDB experiences and bugs in the email:

http://sourceware.org/ml/archer/2009-q4/msg00008.html

This bug (and others in their own bugs) is extracted from that email to track
the issue:

* It would be really useful to temporarily redirect GDB output to a
memory buffer, i.e. a version of gdb.execute that captured the
command's output.  Especially where there aren't specific Python
bindings for what I wanted.
