Debugging with GDB
The GNU Source-Level Debugger
Ninth Edition, for GDB version 18.104.22.16850815-cvsRichard Stallman, Roland Pesch, Stan Shebs, et al.
DOS/Windows systems, the home directory is the one pointed to by the
HOME environment variable.
Note that embedded programs (the so-called "free-standing"
environment) are not required to have a
main function as the
entry point. They could even have multiple entry points.
The only restriction is that your editor (say
ex), recognizes the
following command-line syntax:
ex +number file
The optional numeric value +number specifies the number of the line in the file where to start editing.
`b' cannot be used because these format letters are also
used with the
x command, where `b' stands for "byte";
see section Examining memory.
This is a way of removing
one word from the stack, on machines where stacks grow downward in
memory (most machines, nowadays). This assumes that the innermost
stack frame is selected; setting
$sp is not allowed when other
stack frames are selected. To pop entire frames off the stack,
regardless of machine architecture, use
see section Returning from a function.
If you choose a port number that
conflicts with another service,
gdbserver prints an error message
In `gdb-22.214.171.12450815-cvs/gdb/refcard.ps' of the version 126.96.36.19950815-cvs release.
If you have a more recent version of GDB than 188.8.131.5250815-cvs, look at the `README' file in the sources; we may have improved the installation procedures since publishing this manual.
