Hi Folks,

I'm poring over the gdb pdf trying to understand the difference between 
the s and i commands.

After chatting with a colleague we came up with 2 ideas:

1. i means a single instruction step, and s is an instruction step but 
step over CALL instructions.


2. i means advance the clock once, i.e. by a single word in a multi-word 
instruction. And s means a single instruction step.

All comments welcome!
