   `file FOO' is actually just short hand for:

     `exec-file FOO' + `symbol-file FOO'.

   `info inferiors' shows you the FOO from `exec-file FOO'.

We are on different wave lengths, when I wrote `file' I meant the
command line program, not the GDB command.  Which `info file' has
similar information too at the start.
