Re: Status of 'blacklist' patch?

I last pinged gdb-patches about the patch on May 16 and got no response.

I imagine the patch has bitrotted by now.  I'd be happy to bring it up

(It took a bit of digging to find the last version of the patch - I probably missed it because the patch was attached as a binary, including the changelog entry.)

Anyway, I really like the concept, and "skip" seems like a good general term for the functionality.

I skimmed the April version, and noticed a few things to fix up.

The file headers say things like "Header for GDB line completion.", which I'm guessing is cut-n-paste from another file. :-) Also it's now 2011, not 2010.

There's a lot of change of terminology from "default breakpoint" to "displayed codepoint". I know we've debated better substitutes for "breakpoint", but this patch is maybe not the best place to introduce one. (Or I'm confused about what "codepoint" means, I didn't see a definition.)

I didn't see a patch for the GDB manual, so I'm not sure of the intended functionality details.

If you update the patch and resubmit, I promise I'll give it a prompt review.
