I've been working my way through CS50 and I'm having a problem I hope someone can help me with. I can't get GDB to function at all, and I think it might be a problem with startup - when I type "gdb" and hit enter, the next line says (gdb), but I never get the block of documentation text. Then, when I try to run any programs or anything, it says, without fail. "Undefined command: "". Try help". Any idea how to fix this? It's making pset 3 very difficult.
I then received advice to put "--args" in front of my gdb commands, but that's not working for me either. See below for things I've tried and the results.
I'd really appreciate advice as to the specific syntax to use - I've watched the GDB short over and over and searched online, but all the guides assume more C/GDB knowledge than I have. I've never used a debugger before, so beginner's tips are really appreciated. Thanks!
[Editor: changed "pset4" in title, text and tags to correctly say pset3 (week 4 is pset3) No other changes.]
