Please excuse my ignorance.
When GDB is started like this './gdb --interpreter=mi <program>',
the mi interface is given.
I understand that the client can then communicate with gdb by
issuing mi commands and getting back mi responses.
I would like to know if in the official release of mi ( when its basically
complete ) will accept CLI commands from the client and give back mi
This is important to me since I plan on implementing a console for the
user to issue CLI commands.
What is the difference between MI and -interpreter-exec?
Thanks for your patience,
