  +=head2 Useful Information from gdb Manual
  +
  +Debugging programs with multiple threads:
  +http://sources.redhat.com/gdb/current/onlinedocs/gdb_5.html#SEC25

  +Stopping and starting multi-thread programs:
  +http://sources.redhat.com/gdb/current/onlinedocs/gdb_6.html#SEC40

  +=head2 libpthread

  +when using:
  +
  +  set auto-solib-add 0
  +
  +make sure to:
  +
  +  sharedlibrary libpthread
  +
  +(or whatever the shared library is used on your OS) without which you
  +may have problems to debug the threaded mpm mod_perl.

  +=head1 Defining and Using Custom gdb Macros
  +
  +GDB provides two ways to store sequences of commands for execution as
  +a unit: user-defined commands and command files. See:
  +http://sources.redhat.com/gdb/current/onlinedocs/gdb_21.html
  +
  +Apache 2.0 source comes with a nice pack of macros and can be found in
  +I<httpd-2.0/.gdbinit>. To use it issue:
  +
  +  gdb> source /wherever/httpd-2.0/.gdbinit
  +
  +Now if for example you want to dump the contents of the bucket
  +brigade, you can do:
  +
  +  gdb> dump_brigade my_brigade
  +
  +where C<my_brigade> is the pointer to the bucket brigade that you want
  +to debug.
  +
  +mod_perl 1.0 has a similar file (I<modperl/.gdbinit>) mainly including
  +handy macros for dumping Perl datastructures, however it works only
  +with non-threaded Perls. But otherwise it's useful in debugging
  +mod_perl 2.0 as well.

   =head1 Expanding C Macros
   
   Perl, mod_perl and httpd C code makes an extensive use of C macros,
