[U-Boot-Users] How To Use gdb w/ u-boot source tree

I am quite new with these tools, it looked to me like gdb is just a
command line debugger, and cannot do source level debugging without
some other front end on top of it.

I must have made some incorrect assumptions.

That does not make any difference, or does it? fro example,  use  DDD
as  GUI  frontend  with  GDB  - but it's still GDB that will actually
perform the debugging, so why shoud it behave differently?
