Hello again

So I gave up with virtual box and installed cygwin.
Now when I run the gdb command I am returned to the shell prompt nothing
else happens!

The manual states 
Start a command shell (such as a Cygwin shell window in Windows) with the
environment variables set as described in the toolchain documentation

Where is the toolchain documentation, what environment variables do I need?

thanks

Graham
