4 The Server Prefix

To issue a command to gdb without affecting certain aspects of the state which is seen by users, prefix it with server . This means that this command will not affect the command history, nor will it affect gdb's notion of which command to repeat if <RET> is pressed on a line by itself.

The server prefix does not affect the recording of values into the value history; to print a value without recording it into the value history, use the output command instead of the print command.
