Hi Experts,

I want to debug a program using GDB.  my small program uses a shared library which resides in my current directory.  

When I run the program normally, I use the following method to load the library.

%LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./MyProgram

But, if I want to run gdb how should I tell the debugger to search the current directory for the shared library along with the standard paths( My program uses some other installed libraries in the standard path as well )
