    Question is it possible to call gdb commands from C process?


    Hello,

    I usually debug my programs with gdb ( DDD ), and it works fine.
    But now I would like to do same process with my own app.
    Anybody known how to invoke gdb (or gdb commands ) from a C process?
    is it possible

    Best regards.

    Well,

    To the best of my knowledge, it's why you would want to set a breakpoint in your app/within gdb when you run your app within a gdb instance.

    That way, you stop at the point where you need to test/check on your app to make sure everything is happening as expected. And, it gives you the gdb console to work with at that point.

    HTH. Let us know.
