gdb -silent -e VLCTest.exe -s VLCTest.exe == "no
debugging symbols found"
(gdb) break libvlc_new
No symbol table is loaded. use the file command
As you can see, gdb does not ask me if I want to set a
pending breakpoint. Why? It cant read any symbol table
so how can it knows that the function is not into
VLCTest.exe but in a DLL?
If you have another suggestion, I would be pleased.
