=== TODO

  `ruby where` for the current stack trace
  `ruby print` to inspect ruby variables
  `ruby breakpoint` to breakpoint on ruby methods
  `ruby irb` for a simple interactive shell


=== Credits

  Tom Tromey for his work on gdb python support (gdb-eval.patch, gdb-breakpoints.patch) and help
  tracking down some memory leaks (gdb-leak.patch)

  Joe Damato for writing parts of ruby-gdb.py and various gdb hacks to make gdb.rb possible.
