GDB questions are better sent to the GDB mailing list,, not GCC-help.

You probably also want to provide a bit more information,
such as your environment (architecture, OS, gdb version),
the language you are using (C? C++?) and perhaps the first
lines of the subroutine.  Also the exact text of the command
you entered and the exact text of the error message you
received from gdb.
