Re: Compiling the latest GDB on cygwin
Thanks a lot for your information. I will be looking at the source code
carefully recently and see how much I can be of help.
Regarding the usefulness of Insight, there is some good news. The
Embedded Development Kit (EDK) from Xilinx (the largest company in
reconfigurable hardware, http://www.xilinx.com/) uses Insight. I believe
quite some researchers and engineers in the reconfigurable computing
area are using Insight for embedded system development.
Also, if you know about ModelSim from Mentor Graphics
(http://www.model.com/), you will see that Tcl/Tk is very important in
the EDA (Electronic Design Automation) world. Based on Tcl/Tk, I believe
that Insight makes a lot of sense in EDA. For example, it is very
suitable for tool integration issues.

have been hesitant to do it (or any insight work for that matter): I
believe insight has outlived its usefulness, and most people are moving
onto other gdb front-ends.
