unified JS/C++ backtraces, colorized backtraces, colorized source listing for gdb 7.3/archer-trunk updated

gdb has had integrated python support for some time and it is truly awesome.  The innards have changed here and there, so my previous efforts to show colorized/fancy backtraces, show colorized source listings, and provide unified JS/C++ mozilla backtraces (with colors still) have experienced some bit-rot over time. I have de-bitrotted the changes, hard.  Hard […]

Unfortunately, this took a lot longer than I was hoping. Cairo lacks a […]

This has resulted in some backend cleanup and refactoring, although there is more to do. This also allows for attractive use of gradients: The […]
