Hi Andreas,

for example in ChangeLog.12, line 2470, it's written

     (gdb-stack-buffer, gdb-frames-select): Use it.

Does the term "Use it" have a special meaning with respect to
execution? Does it mean something like implicit?

You've put it out of context.  The complete ChangeLog entry is as
follows:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
2007-01-21  Nick Roberts<address@hidden>

        * progmodes/gdb-ui.el (gdb-var-create-regexp)
        (gdb-var-create-handler): Handle value field in GDB output of
        -var-create.
        (gdb-max-frames): New variable.
        (gdb-stack-buffer, gdb-frames-select): Use it.
        (gdb-info-stack-custom): Help user customize gdb-max-frames,
        if necessary.
        (gdb-get-frame-number): Simplify.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

So before the "Use it" line, a new variable `gdb-max-frames' was
introduced.  The two functions `gdb-stack-buffer' and
`gdb-frames-select' were changed to *use it* then.

Thanks,

so I understand: *use it* relates to newly introduced forms upward the current line.

Was not obvious for me, sorry. :)

Andreas
