GDB/MI is a line based machine oriented text interface to GDB. It is specifically intended to support the development of systems which use the debugger as just one small component of a larger system.
This chapter is a specification of the GDB/MI interface. It is written in the form of a reference manual.
Note that GDB/MI is still under construction, so some of the features described below are incomplete and subject to change.
This chapter uses the following notation:
|separates two alternatives.
[ something ]indicates that something is optional: it may or may not be given.
( group )*means that group inside the parentheses may repeat zero or more times.
( group )+means that group inside the parentheses may repeat one or more times.
