[vox-tech] Re: latex help: drawing arrows

ok, here's the solution.  i guess it looks ok.


\newcommand{\Next}{\texttt{next}\ }
\newcommand{\Step}{\texttt{step}\ }

In contrast, \Step will cause gdb to step into the function and begin executing
the function line by line.

\rput[l](0,22){/* flawedswap.c: A flawed function that swaps two integers. */}
\rput[l](0,21){\#include $<$stdio.h$>$}
\rput[l](0,20){void swap(int a, int b);}
\rput[l](0,18){int main(void)}
\rput[l](1,16){int i = 4;}
\rput[l](1,15){int j = 4;}
\rput[l](1,13){printf("i: \%d, j: \%d\backslash{n}", i, j);}
\rput[l](1,12){swap(i, j);}
\rput[l](1,11){printf("i: \%d, j: \%d\backslash{n}", i, j);}
\rput[l](1,9){return 0;}
\rput[l](0,6){void swap(int a, int b)}
\rput[l](1,4){int c = a;}
\rput[l](1,3){a = b;}
\rput[l](1,2){b = c;}
