D.16 Thread List Format

To efficiently update the list of threads and their attributes, gdb issues the qXfer:threads:read packet (see qXfer threads read) and obtains the XML document with the following structure:

     <?xml version="1.0"?>
         <thread id="id" core="0">
         ... description ...

Each thread element must have the id attribute that identifies the thread (see thread-id syntax). The core attribute, if present, specifies which processor core the thread was last executing on. The content of the of thread element is interpreted as human-readable auxilliary information.
