When I start gdb, I connect to the target and download to it as specifed in .gdbinit and then I can debug. Is there a way to restart this without exiting gdb, ie, force a re-run of .gdbinit and optionally preserve previously set BPs?

I hate to say this, but I cringe everytime I hear about someone
connecting to a target in .gdbinit. It can really screw up insight.

Have not observed any obvious problems. What should I look out for?

Nonetheless, there are options: 1) Put all your target commands in .gdbinit into a user-defined command. Then just run that command (via the console window).

2) Use target settings dialog. Click Run button.


When looking up "user-defined" command in manual saw "source" command. This seems to do exactly what I want, i.e., I type

so .gdbinit

and it all starts over and preserves the old breakpoints.

Thanks for the help.
