You can start off by looking at the man page for the ptrace system
call, which is present on most UNIX flavors.
Debugger implementations such as gdb use the ptrace system call to
control the execution of the process being debugged (breakpoints,
single-stepping, etc) and the debug info (if any) generated by the
compiler to provide support for symbolic debugging.
