Re: command-list does not work in my gdb 7.2 port

I guess so.

Anyway, I find out what goes wrong in my port.

In <targ>-remote.c, we need to implement function
<target>_wait(struct target_ops *ops, ptid_t ptid, struct
target_waitstatus *status, int options), wherein STATUS is an output
parameter to store the target stop status. For a breakpoint hit, it
needs to be assigned with a trap signal, otherwise, COMMANDS won't

Best regards.
