Re: GDB Darwin

Are there any docs on where to start with something like this?

The BFD settings from Apples branch are all present in GDB 7.2 i.e.

 arm-*-darwin* | arm-*-macos10*)
   targ_selvecs="mach_o_be_vec mach_o_le_vec mach_o_fat_vec "

However building with that doesnt do anything useful.

How do you actually go about implementing a new target? Most of the functionality is present (mach-o, arm, darwin) but it needs glueing together correctly.

I see GDB now has support for i386, x64 and PowerPC flavours of
darwin, but not ARM. Is ARM Darwin support planned? I'm trying to
find a nice way of debugging directly from a Windows machine (there
is already an ARM Darwin targeted GDB, but this is only on OSX).

As far as I know, I haven't heard of anyone planning on doing the work for ARM.
