12. Using No value for GDBN with Different Languages

Although programming languages generally have common aspects, they are rarely expressed in the same manner. For instance, in ANSI C, dereferencing a pointer p is accomplished by *p, but in Modula-2, it is accomplished by p^. Values can also be represented (and displayed) differently. Hex numbers in C appear as ‘0x1ae’, while in Modula-2 they appear as ‘1AEH’.

Language-specific information is built into No value for GDBN for some languages, allowing you to express operations like the above in your program's native language, and allowing No value for GDBN to output values in a manner consistent with the syntax of your program's native language. The language you use to build expressions is called the working language.
