Lynn's GDB essay

2New GDB extensions are created to support information display and touring among
3\uC user tasks, and new hooks are added to the GNU Debugger to support a
4\CFA demangler. The GDB extensions are implemented using the Python API, and
5the hooks to add debugging support for \CFA are implemented using \uC. For
6the GDB extensions, writing Python extensions is easier and more robust.
7Furthermore, GDB provides sufficient hooks to make it possible for a new
8language to leverage existing infrastructure and codebase to add debugging
9support. The result provides significantly new capabilities for examining and
10debugging both \uC and \CFA programs.
