2.3 Shell Commands

If you need to execute occasional shell commands during your debugging session, there is no need to leave or suspend No value for GDBN; you can just use the shell command.

shell command string

Invoke a standard shell to execute command string. If it exists, the environment variable SHELL determines which shell to run. Otherwise No value for GDBN uses the default shell (‘/bin/sh’ on Unix systems, ‘COMMAND.COM’ on MS-DOS, etc.).

The utility make is often needed in development environments. You do not have to use the shell command for this purpose in No value for GDBN:

make make-args

Execute the make program with the specified arguments. This is equivalent to ‘shell make make-args’.
