gdbserve.nlm is a control program for NetWare systems, which
allows you to connect your program with a remote GDB via
gdbserve.nlm communicate via a serial line,
using the standard GDB remote serial protocol.
gdbserve.nlmdoes not need your program's symbol table, so you can strip the program if necessary to save space. GDB on the host system does all the symbol handling. To use the server, you must tell it how to communicate with GDB; the name of your program; and the arguments for your program. The syntax is:
load gdbserve [ BOARD=board ] [ PORT=port ] [ BAUD=baud ] program [ args ... ]board and port specify the serial line; baud specifies the baud rate used by the connection. port and node default to 0, baud defaults to 9600bps. For example, to debug Emacs with the argument `foo.txt'and communicate with GDB over serial port number 2 or board 1 using a 19200bps connection:
load gdbserve BOARD=1 PORT=2 BAUD=19200 emacs foo.txt
target remoteto establish communications with
gdbserve.nlm. Its argument is a device name (usually a serial device, like `/dev/ttyb'). For example:
(gdb) target remote /dev/ttybcommunications with the server via serial line `/dev/ttyb'.
