The Old Open Source Mindset: Source Is All Mighty

A friend posed an excellent question about how gdb impacts the stack of a debug built application and I stumbled upon this type of logic “You want to know how gdb works? Read the source! DUH ”

Go read the source of gdb and if your not insane after 5 minutes of being in macro hell, you truly walk above the common man.

There is a time/place for reading code but never, ever should it replace a high level technical document.
