This chapter describes annotations in GDB. Annotations were designed to interface GDB to graphical user interfaces or other similar programs which want to interact with GDB at a relatively high level.
The annotation mechanism has largely been superseeded by GDB/MI (*note GDB/MI::).
|Annotations Overview||What annotations are; the general syntax.|
|Server Prefix||Issuing a command without affecting user state.|
|Prompting||Annotations marking GDB's need for input.|
|Errors||Annotations for error messages.|
|Invalidation||Some annotations describe things now invalid.|
|Annotations for Running||Whether the program is running, how it stopped, etc.|
