input and output to GDB, and switches to it. If a GDB buffer already
exists, it just switches to that buffer.

You can also run GDB in text command mode, like the other debuggers
in Emacs. To do this, replace the GDB @code{"--annotate=3"} option
with @code{"--fullname"} either in the minibuffer for the current
Emacs session, or the custom variable @code{gud-gdb-command-name} for
all future sessions. You need to use text command mode to debug
multiple programs within one Emacs session. You can also use
@kbd{M-x gud-gdb} to invoke GDB in text command mode if you have
problems before execution has started.
