That's, I'll go to Amazon and see what it's about....

Of course they only use C (no surprise) - no other programming
language exists. ;-)

That's the problem! GDB *doesn't* support all the language features
that Object Pascal offers, so some things cannot be debugged. This is
not a Lazarus issue, but a limitation of GDB with the Object Pascal
language. And I have heard the comments about trying to implement new
features in GDB - apparently you do NOT want to go there!
