Description Dan Rittersdorf 2000-06-23 12:32:34 EDT
xxgdb -x filename objfile 

reports a usage error.  -x filename is a legitimate gdb option, and should
be recognized by xxgdb.  This problem makes it impossible to generate gdb
commands on the fly in a script and either invoke gdb or xxgdb depending on
the presence of an X display.

Sorry, but xxgdb is pretty simple and lacks support for a lot of the features
found in GDB. I'd recommend using ddd from powertools instead.
