Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In relation to the following question, I have produced the following script snippet.


# Open openocd and pipe data throudh stdin/stdout.
# Openocd quits after gdb exits.
target remote | /usr/local/bin/openocd -f linux_config.cfg

Instead of opening a port (default 3333), openocd pipes it's input and output to gdb.

This works a charm in Ubuntu, but I need it in Windows 7 as well. Is there a way to use unnamed pipes in .gdbinit udner Windows? I am using the this toolchain: Olimex
