Description : The GNU debugger for ARM targets
GDB is a source-level debugger, capable of breaking programs at any
specific line, displaying variable values, and determining where
errors occurred. Currently, it works for C, C++, Fortran Modula 2 and
Java programs. A must-have for any serious programmer.
This package has been built for the arm-none-eabi target. It is
intended for ARM developers and cross-compilers and is not needed by
normal users or developers.
I'm not really sure how I will package gdb for arm cleanly, as there
is no gdb-source package available.
The gdb-avr and gdb-m68hc1x packages bundle the DFSG-cleaned
gdb-6.4.90 source. This doesn't feel quite right to me, but it seems
to be the way to go.
