The exact gdb commands, below, are actually generated by DDD:
(gdb) graph display buff
(gdb) graph display *buff dependent on 1
(gdb) Attempt to dereference a generic pointer.
Disabling display 2 to avoid infinite recursion.
buff is defined in the code as:
buff = (void *)param->get_string();
I should mention that I've experimented some more since my first message. I got adventurous with gdb's print command and found out I could explicitly cast the variable, like this:
(gdb) print (char*)buff
$1 = 0x8060a40 "Alex"
I think I may have answered my own question -- right?
