       When GDB finds a symbol file, it scans the symbols in the file in order to construct an
       internal symbol table.  This lets most GDB operations work quickly--at the cost of a delay
       early on.  For large programs, this delay can be quite lengthy, so GDB provides a way to
       build an index, which speeds up startup.

       To determine whether a file contains such an index, use the command readelf -S filename:
       the index is stored in a section named ".gdb_index".  Note that the index is never
       generated for files that do not contain DWARF debug information (sections named

       See more in the GDB manual in node "Index Files" -- shell command "info -f gdb -n 'Index

       The full documentation for GDB is maintained as a Texinfo manual.  If the "info" and "gdb"
       programs and GDB's Texinfo documentation are properly installed at your site, the command
