How do I set these break points in ~/.gdbinit?

Here is a list of break points to put in ~/.gdbinit that are really helpful in debugging memory problems:

fb -[NSException raise]
fb -[NSAssertionHandler handleFailureInFunction:file:lineNumber:description:]
fb -[NSAssertionHandler handleFailureInMethod:object:file:lineNumber:description:]

#define NSZombies
# this will give you help messages.  Set to NO to turn them off.
set env MallocHelp=YES
# might also be set in launch arguments.
set env NSZombieEnabled=YES
set env NSDeallocateZombies=NO
set env MallocCheckHeapEach=100000
set env MallocCheckHeapStart=100000
set env MallocScribble=YES
set env MallocGuardEdges=YES
set env MallocCheckHeapAbort=1

set env CFZombie 5

fb -[_NSZombie init]
fb -[_NSZombie retainCount]
fb -[_NSZombie retain]
fb -[_NSZombie release]
fb -[_NSZombie autorelease]
fb -[_NSZombie methodSignatureForSelector:]
fb -[_NSZombie respondsToSelector:]
fb -[_NSZombie forwardInvocation:]
fb -[_NSZombie class]
fb -[_NSZombie dealloc]

    The title of this indicates that you are asking how to set these in ~/.gdbinit but the first line of your detailed question indicates that you have the above in ~/.gdbinit?

    What, exactly, is the problem, then?

    I use something pretty similar and it works fine, but since much of this is fairly intrusive behavioral changes, I put it in a separate file (~/.gdbmem) and then source it as needed.

    My ~/.gdbinit is limited almost entirely to macro definitions that don’t otherwise change the debugging session. Thus, the default behavior is minimal impact on debugging and I can source one of 2 additional files full of gdb config goop to automatically apply some relatively intrusive additional configuration to the environment.
