I think that generating any output in a consumer-provided format would
be a mistake. When you have issues like your , you need to talk to
the GDB developers about them and work out some better way to solve
the problem - and then it will benefit all consumers.
Sorry for coming down on you about this; it's not directed just at
you, but at most front end developers. Don't work around GDB! Tell
GDB what you need, instead, and work with it.
