Hi Ed,

Key resources for developers that should help you are

- the GDB Internals document (gdb/doc/gdb.texinfo in the distribution,
or online at sourceware.org/gdb/current/onlinedocs/gdbint_toc.html

- the GDB IRC channel #gdb on irc.freenode.net, port 6667 (lots of
helpful developers to answer your questions live)

- the GDB Wiki at sourceware.org/gdb/wiki

I wrote an application note on porting GDB, which you may find useful
for an overview of the internals at www.embecosm.com/download/ean3.html
(also on the GDB Wiki).

HTH,


Jeremy
