Does anyone know of any documents/manuals explaining how to add support
for gdb? I'm writing the back end of a C compiler and will be spitting
code for Motorola 68040, sparc, MIPS R2000 and maybe ibm's RS/6000.

so far there's only the gdb manual that I glanced through, and of course
gcc -S -g

Any help is greatly appreciated.

please email any responses to:

I'll summarize if there's any interest.

no substitute here for reading the code. -John]
