GDB is a source-level debugger, capable of breaking programs at
any specific line, displaying variable values, and determining
where errors occurred. Currently, gdb supports C, C++, D,
Objective-C, Fortran, Java, OpenCL C, Pascal, assembly, Modula-2,
Go, and Ada. A must-have for any serious programmer.
This package contains gdbserver.  Install this to debug remotely
from another system where GDB is installed.
