The CLI commands are still handled by the mi interpreter; their
output is described below.
The token, when present, is passed back when the command
Some mi commands accept optional arguments as part of the parameter
list. Each option is identified by a leading - (dash) and may be
followed by an optional argument parameter. Options occur first in the
parameter list and can be delimited from normal parameters using
- (this is useful when some parameters begin with a dash).
We want easy access to the existing CLI syntax (for debugging).
We want it to be easy to spot a mi operation.
26.4.2. gdb/mi Output Syntax
The output from gdb/mi consists of zero or more out-of-band records
followed, optionally, by a single result record. This result record
is for the most recent command. The sequence of output records is
terminated by (gdb).
If an input command was prefixed with a token then the
corresponding output for that command will also be prefixed by that same
All output sequences end in a single line containing a period.
The token is from the corresponding request. If an execution
command is interrupted by the -exec-interrupt command, the
token associated with the *stopped message is the one of the
original execution command, not the one of the interrupt command.
status-async-output contains on-going status information about the
progress of a slow operation. It can be discarded. All status output is
prefixed by +.
exec-async-output contains asynchronous state change on the target
(stopped, started, disappeared). All async output is prefixed by
notify-async-output contains supplementary information that the
client should handle (e.g., a new breakpoint information). All notify
output is prefixed by =.
console-stream-output is output that should be displayed as is in the
console. It is the textual response to a CLI command. All the console
output is prefixed by ~.
target-stream-output is the output produced by the target program.
All the target output is prefixed by @.
log-stream-output is output text coming from gdb's internals, for
instance messages that should be displayed as part of an error log. All
the log output is prefixed by &.
New gdb/mi commands should only output lists containing
This subsection presents several simple examples of interaction using
the gdb/mi interface. In these examples, -> means that the
following line is passed to gdb/mi as input, while <- means
the output received from gdb/mi.
