@tonyw & all

exactly why is gdb next to useless?

back in the day when I used to haunt the gcc mailing lists (I miss those days actually) with 2.95.3 out etc and Gunther Nikl working his magic with 3.x and me harassing them with lame enquires...

I remember gdb has always been useless! and I remember AmigaOS didn't support the dropping of core files?

apart from me running some mud codebases through it (it solved an annoying problem with some circlemud distributions which would freeze randomly) I'd control-c into the window then type continue and the mud would start running again with x amount of missed pulses or ticks etc... heartbeats if you like... years later it was suggested it was an incompatiable wait() function that was the culprit...

Anyway, I'm sure someone has explained this to me before *whistle* but is it just our kernel that makes porting gdb with all its bells and whistles across an impossibility?

Thanks! for any insight
