gdb indicates its readiness to read a command by printing a string
called the prompt. This string is normally (gdb). You
can change the prompt string with the set prompt command. For
instance, when debugging gdb with gdb, it is useful to change
the prompt in one of the gdb sessions so that you can always tell
which one you are talking to.
Note: set prompt does not add a space for you after the
prompt you set. This allows you to set a prompt which ends in a space
or a prompt that does not.
- set prompt newprompt
Directs gdb to use newprompt as its prompt string henceforth.
- show prompt
Prints a line of the form: Gdb's prompt is: your-prompt
