At this point you should see a (gdb) prompt.  At the prompt you can 
enter any gdb command such as break, step, next, or continue -- some of 
the commands are listed at 

If you are trying to debug a specific C function, you might enter
(gdb) break FunctionName
(gdb) continue
This sets a breakpoint at the function name FunctionName and then 
continues execution of the program.  Then you'd execute python code that 
calls down to FunctionName and then step or otherwise debug in gdb. 
Feel free to contact us directly at support at wingware.com with specifics 
of what you're trying to debug.
