OK Carl, but using GDB, I can set breakpoints on the "main" source file, and I
can step into the secondary files, but I can't find a way to set breakpoints
on those other files.
It could be a command option, and I haven't found the trick.
Any advice on setting breakpoints with GDB?
BTW, I think GDB is a great tool, with the "right" kind of command front-end
for text. I just haven't found the trick.
