(gdb) complete b add_
You could do M-x gdb-enable-debug, then
(gdb) b b add_<TAB>
in the Gud buffer.
Then inspect gdb-debug-log (C-h v) to see if "complete b add_" gets sent to Gdb.
Neat trick. :)
I suspect it does and this relates to Apple Gdb and the previous problem with ^M
Here's what I tried.
1. emacs -Q -nw foo.c
2. M-x gdb RET foo RET
3. M-x gdb-enable-debug
4. "b add_<TAB>" [hangs]
5. C-g twice (stops hanging)
6. C-h v gdb-debug-log RET
I'll attach the contents of the *Help* buffer as gdb-debug-log.txt.
The last cons in gdb-debug-log.txt is (send-item ... "complete b
add_\n"). The second and third cons's above (send-item) seem to
contain the completion output.
You could also download and compile FSF Gdb on Mac (I can't remember if you
already have) and try that.
I haven't had a chance to build an fsf gdb yet, but I'm downloading
gdb-7.0.1 now. I'll try gdb 7.0.1 and let you know how it goes.
