15.1.1 List of Filename Extensions and Languages

If a source file name ends in one of the following extensions, then GDB infers that its language is the one indicated.


Ada source file.


C source file


C++ source file


D source file


Objective-C source file


Fortran source file


Modula-2 source file


Assembler source file. This actually behaves almost like C, but GDB does not skip over function prologues when stepping.

In addition, you may set the language associated with a filename extension. See Displaying the Language.
