Connecting to VxWorks

The GDB command `target' lets you connect to a VxWorks target on the
network.  To connect to a target whose host name is "`tt'", type:
     (vxgdb) target vxworks tt
   GDB displays messages like these:
     Attaching remote machine across net...
     Connected to tt.
   GDB then attempts to read the symbol tables of any object modules
loaded into the VxWorks target since it was last booted.  GDB locates
these files by searching the directories listed in the command search
path (*note Your program's environment: Environment.); if it fails to
find an object file, it displays a message such as:
     prog.o: No such file or directory.
   When this happens, add the appropriate directory to the search path
with the GDB command `path', and execute the `target' command again.
