    gdb debugger


    While running the gdb debugger on a program, when i run a command it displays a message "not in executable format: File format not recognized". Further it displays "No executable file specified" , sometimes displays "No symbol table is loaded. Use the "file" command.". Please help me in understanding this ? i ran the program previously, also i changed the program to executable.

    Also Please provide me a link to understand the Gdb-debugger ?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    How was the program in question built/compiled?
