Hello, Daniel!

I've tried this before:

system "echo \"main(){}\" >a.c"
gdb_compile a.c a executable {debug additional_flags=-w}
send_gdb "file a\n"
gdb_expect {
        -re ".*\(gdb\) " {
        timeout {
                fail "zzz"
gdb_test "l main" {1.main\(\){}.*} "a"


1. It times out always. Why? How should one do that?

2. I've tried also gdb_test "file a\n" ".*\(gdb\) " "zzz"; it always
   failed. Why?

3. Actually, I wanted just to discard the output; is it possible? Does
   it make sense? After your explanation, I tend to think that it
   doesn't, since one has to match the prompt.

Thanks much for your help!

With kind regards,
