  You may be correct.  But I have not used GDB before.  I've used some
predecessors long ago in UNIX land, but when it comes to debuggers in
microcontrollers I have been strictly "printf" and/or an IDE holding my
  I've read that GDB can interface to Eclipse through a CDT(?) module,
which implies that avr-gdb will as well, but I have no clue how to
connect avarice to avr-gdb and have not yet found a "how to" so that I
can ask intelligent and informed questions.  So I too am awaiting a
