Thanks Ken,

I would be interested in why you chose the TCF interface over DSF.

Hi Rick,
You may also want to consider the TCF debugger protocol currently being
developed in the Target Management project (see  It already has a reference
agent implementation (in C) that you could re-use, which would save you
the headache of implementing the MI protocol layer from scratch.
Also, as Marc pointed out GDB/MI protocol is evolving quite a lot to
support new features and keeping up with its changes will likely require
considerable effort.  This shouldn't be a big surprise, as from my past
discussions with GDB developers I got the impression that GDB/MI as a
standard protocol to be implemented by other debuggers is definitely not
on their agenda. Cheers,
