I have invoked gdb with '-e' command line option on an executable,
The gdb manual says '-e' is used to set the executable to run.
But I could not see the symbols read in by gdb when I use -e and could
not insert breakpoints.
What is the intent of having the command line option "-e" or "-exec"?
Hmmm, it does seem to be broken.
You can get the same effect, though, by just leaving out the -e flag.
