            I am new to gdb.
I want to know is there any way to execute shell commands (like ls, ps
.......)  at  gdb  command prompt??

Suppose if I want to know list of files in current directory while
running "gdb", I have to open another shell to know it. Without
opening it, is it possible to execute "ls " command at gdb command

Thanks in advance.
