SYNOPSIS         top



DESCRIPTION         top

       These files contain GDB commands to automatically execute during GDB
       startup.  The lines of contents are canned sequences of commands,
       described in the GDB manual in node "Sequences" -- shell command
       "info -f gdb -n Sequences".

       Please read more in the GDB manual in node "Startup" -- shell command
       "info -f gdb -n Startup".

       (not enabled with "--with-system-gdbinit" during compilation)
           System-wide initialization file.  It is executed unless user
           specified GDB option "-nx" or "-n".  See more in the GDB manual
           in node "System-wide configuration" -- shell command "info -f gdb
           -n 'System-wide configuration'".

           User initialization file.  It is executed unless user specified
           GDB options "-nx", "-n" or "-nh".

           Initialization file for current directory.  It may need to be
           enabled with GDB security command "set auto-load local-gdbinit".
           See more in the GDB manual in node "Init File in the Current
           Directory" -- shell command "info -f gdb -n 'Init File in the

       properly installed at your site, the command

               info gdb

       should give you access to the complete manual.
