RE: Emacs for Workshop?

(Unfortunately, gdb-5.2.1 doesn't seem to be able to read the symbol
table generated by the Sun Workshop compiler.  Possibly gdb needs to be
told where they are other than the executable, but I haven't managed to
work out if that is the case or how to do it.)

But, more importantly for me as a user, GUD is not as good (no pun
intended) as Workshop/XEmacs.  Although there is a nice arrow in the
margin to show the current execution line, GUD does not show breakpoints
in the same way, does not allow me to interactively manipulate lists of
breakpoints, e.g., to enable or disable individual breakpoints or add
breakpoints in a variety of ways.  Workshop/Emacs puts program output in
a different window from debugger output.  I don't have to tell
Workshop/XEmacs where source files are.

It also could do with buttons rather than menu items for common
commands.  It's a pain to have to do C-x C-a C-n or even select a menu
entry when all you want to do is move one line.  Its menu could also be
more extensive.

Workshop/XEmacs is simply easier to use and more powerful.  I'd be happy
to help in making GUD better, though I don't have a lot of time at the
moment to implement large changes.
