Custom key bindings to :Termdebug

Uri Moszkowicz
Hi,
The new :Termdebug in Vim 8.1 is great but it lacks usable key bindings like I used to have with VimGDB. For those unfamiliar, VimGDB introduced a GDB mode, which can be toggled with F7. When in GDB mode, the GDB shortcuts were mapped so "u" sent "up", "d" sent "down", "w" sent "where", "b" set a breakpoint and "B" unset the breakpoint, etc.

How can I setup these same key bindings? Looks to me like the script provides some functions but not complete ones. Most importantly, the function/members necessary to send commands to the GDB buffer are inaccessible outside the script.

Thanks,
Uri

The upcoming version of the terminal debugger plugin will allow for
this:


Shorcuts *termdebug_shortcuts*

You can define your own shortcuts (mappings) to control gdb, that can work in
any window, using the TermDebugSendCommand() function.  Example: >
        map ,w :call TermDebugSendCommand('where')<CR>
The argument is the gdb command.
