22.9 Other Miscellaneous Settings

set interactive-mode
If on, forces gdb to operate interactively. If off, forces gdb to operate non-interactively, If auto (the default), gdb guesses which mode to use, based on whether the debugger was started in a terminal or not.

In the vast majority of cases, the debugger should be able to guess correctly which mode should be used. But this setting can be useful in certain specific cases, such as running a MinGW gdb inside a cygwin window.


show interactive-mode
Displays whether the debugger is operating in interactive mode or not.
