like man gdb?
thats pretty much pointing just to info gdb which displays the same that
man gdb does ;)
ok ive not installed the info gdb pages maybe on this computer but i cant
help but repeat that this is very poor way of handling things.
A experienced devel will be able to solve all that and find his awnsers but
not quickly but a unexperienced person will fail with gdbs manual and --help

i never said our manual and --help are any good
