Annotations (Debugging with GDB)
28 GDB Annotations
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The annotation mechanism has largely been superseded by GDB/MI (see GDB/MI).
