  until 192 
 This runs some theoretical program with ''file.input'' as an argument, breaks in ''do_stuff'', displays ''g_my_stuff'' every time the program stops, continues twice past the ''do_stuff'' breakpoint, sets a temporary breakpoint in ''set_stuff'', continues till it hits this breakpoint, then continues until line 192. All of this is automated when you type ''gdb programname'' in the directory the ''.gdbinit'' resides in.

+Sometimes you hypothesize that the compiler is generating broken assembly (or generating assembly you didn't expect)  
+ objdump -l -S --disassemble -r ''./foo''  
+Will display the assembly intermixed with the source (if it was compiled with debugging symbols).
