There isn't one. The last time I looked at this I convinced myself
that you need a different library (redistributable, but you need the
headers from a .NET purchased VC++ to use it) to get the right
information; but that may not be true.
What Stan described is pretty much the way I'd do it. If you're
feeling really fancy it might be possible to do so transparently
to the rest of GDB.
