NAME

gdbinit - GDB initialization scripts  

SYNOPSIS

/etc/gdbinit

~/.gdbinit

./.gdbinit  

DESCRIPTION

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".

/etc/gdbinit
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'".
(not enabled with "--with-system-gdbinit-dir" during compilation)
System-wide initialization directory. All files in this directory are executed on startup unless user specified GDB option "-nx" or "-n", as long as they have a recognized file extension. See more in the GDB manual in node "System-wide configuration" --- shell command "info -f gdb -n 'System-wide configuration'".
~/.gdbinit
User initialization file. It is executed unless user specified GDB options "-nx", "-n" or "-nh".
./.gdbinit
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 Current Directory'".

        info gdb

should give you access to the complete manual.
