Description Ciro Santilli 2017-08-20 11:18:44 UTC
Current behavior is a bit confusing:

    gdbserver :1234 ./prog.out arg0 arg1
    gdb -ex 'target remote :1234' ./prog.out

    (gdb) b main
    (gdb) c
    (gdb) show args
    Argument list to give program being debugged when it is started is ""
    (gdb) print argc
    $1 = 3

Would require sending the arguments over the protocol I expect.

And while we are at it, also make args persist for --multi across runs: currently it is only used for the first one. See also: https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=21981

Sorry, the site or my internet was a bit shaky.
