6.1.1 Your Program's Arguments
The arguments to your program are specified by the arguments of the
`run' command, as composed in `Program => Run'.
In GDB, the arguments are passed to a shell, which expands wildcard
characters and performs redirection of I/O, and thence to your program.
Your `SHELL' environment variable (if it exists) specifies what shell
GDB uses. If you do not define `SHELL', GDB uses `/bin/sh'.
If you use another inferior debugger, the exact semantics on how the
arguments are interpreted depend on the inferior debugger you are using.
Normally, the shell is used to pass the arguments, so that you may use
normal conventions (such as wildcard expansion or variable substitution)
in describing the arguments.
