Annotations for Running (Debugging with GDB)
28.6 Running the Program
When the program starts executing due to a GDB command such as
is output. When the program stops,
is output. Before the
stopped annotation, a variety of annotations describe how the program stopped.
The program exited, and
exit-status is the exit status (zero for successful exit, otherwise nonzero).
The program exited with a signal. After the
^Z^Zsignalled, the annotation continues:
intro-text ^Z^Zsignal-name name ^Z^Zsignal-name-end middle-text ^Z^Zsignal-string string ^Z^Zsignal-string-end end-text
name is the name of the signal, such as
string is the explanation of the signal, such as
Illegal Instruction or
Segmentation fault. The arguments
end-text are for the user’s benefit and have no particular format.
The syntax of this annotation is just like
signalled, but GDB is just saying that the program received the signal, not that it was terminated with it.
