Go up to File-I/O remote protocol extension
Go to the top op gdb
The isatty(3) call
A special case in this protocol is the library call `isatty' which is
implemented as it's own call inside of this protocol. It returns 1 to
the target if the file descriptor given as parameter is attached to the
GDB console, 0 otherwise. Implementing through system calls would
require implementing `ioctl' and would be more complex than needed.
