/* An event loop listens for events from multiple event sources. When
an event arrives, it is queued and processed by calling the
appropriate event handler. The event loop then continues to listen
for more events. An event loop completes when there are no event
sources to listen on. External event sources can be plugged into
the loop.
There are 3 main components:
- a list of file descriptors to be monitored, GDB_NOTIFIER.
- a list of events that have occurred, EVENT_QUEUE.
- a list of signal handling functions, SIGHANDLER_LIST.
GDB_NOTIFIER keeps track of the event sources. Event sources for
gdb are currently the UI and the target. Gdb communicates with the
command line user interface via the readline library and usually
communicates with remote targets via a serial port. Serial ports
are represented in GDB as file descriptors and select/poll calls.
For native targets instead, the communication consists of calls to
ptrace and waits (via signals) or calls to poll/select (via file
descriptors). In the current gdb, the code handling events related
to the target resides in the wait_for_inferior function and in
various target specific files (*-tdep.c).
EVENT_QUEUE keeps track of the events that have happened during the
last iteration of the event loop, and need to be processed. An
event is represented by a procedure to be invoked in order to
process the event. The queue is scanned head to tail. If the
event of interest is a change of state in a file descriptor, then a
call to poll or select will be made to detect it.
If the events generate signals, they are also queued by special
functions that are invoked through traditional signal handlers.
The actions to be taken is response to such events will be executed
when the SIGHANDLER_LIST is scanned, the next time through the
infinite loop.
Corollary tasks are the creation and deletion of event sources. */

async_queue_event and serviced later on by gdb_do_one_event. An
event can be, for instance, a file descriptor becoming ready to be
read. Servicing an event simply means that the procedure PROC will
be called. We have 2 queues, one for file handlers that we listen
to in the event loop, and one for the file handlers+events that are
ready. The procedure PROC associated with each event is always the
same (handle_file_event). Its duty is to invoke the handler
associated with the file descriptor whose state change generated
the event, plus doing other cleanups adn such. */

/* Stack for prompts. Each prompt is composed as a prefix, a prompt
and a suffix. The prompt to be displayed at any given time is the
one on top of the stack. A stack is necessary because of cases in
which the execution of a gdb command requires further input from
the user, like for instance 'commands' for breakpoints and
'actions' for tracepoints. In these cases, the prompt is '>' and
gdb should process input using the asynchronous readline interface
and the event loop. In order to achieve this, we need to save
somewhere the state of GDB, i.e. that it is processing user input
as part of a command and not as part of the top level command loop.
The prompt stack represents part of the saved state. Another part
would be the function that readline would invoke after a whole line
of input has ben entered. This second piece would be something
like, for instance, where to return within the code for the actions
commands after a line has been read. This latter portion has not
beeen implemented yet. The need for a 3-part prompt arises from
the annotation level. When this is set to 2, the prompt is actually
composed of a prefix, the prompt itself and a suffix. */
/* At any particular time there will be always at least one prompt on
the stack, the one being currently displayed by gdb. If gdb is
using annotation level equal 2, there will be 2 prompts on the
stack: the usual one, w/o prefix and suffix (at top - 1), and the
'composite' one with prefix and suffix added (at top). At this
time, this is the only use of the prompt stack. Resetting annotate
to 0 or 1, pops the top of the stack, resetting its size to one
element. The MAXPROMPTS limit is safe, for now. Once other cases
are dealt with (like the different prompts used for 'commands' or
'actions') this array implementation of the prompt stack may have
to change. */
