Remote debugging

MOSS supports full source-level debugging of applications running under MOSS, if you can attach your DOS test machine to a machine running a Un*x-like operating system using a null-modem serial cable. (Null-modem cables can be gotten from any decent computer supply store.) MOSS contains a small piece of stub code that allows GDB or another compatible debugger to attach to and control the MOSS application's execution over the serial line.
