RE: [cdt-dev] Purpose of MIInferior class

That's what I get for trying to quickly scan the code and come up with an answer. Thought I had it right, but oh welll...

It's the opposite, MIInferior represents the process being debugged.

MIInferior is the java.lang.Process that represents the gdb process
itself, as opposed to the, say, the "Hello World" process the user is

You will see that the gdb process is represented in the Debug view.
The model object associated with that view element is an MIInferior

As for standalone documentation on the gdb/mi CDI reference
implementation, there is none that I know of.  Detailed low level
documents is not something you're not going to come across very often in
CDT, but I think that holds true for many projects. There are comments
in the code, but admittedly, they are sparse. In a perfect world,
committers would thoroughly document their classes/interfaces/methods.
Often, though, the focus is on developing good software that performs,
is well designed, and intuitive. If software meets those three criteria,
engineers can often learn the design simply by studying the code. It's
not an ideal situation, but it's something.
