Read and execute dbxtra commands from a named file. Each line of the named file is read and interpreted by dbxtra as if it were entered from the standard input stream. When all the lines have been read, commands are again read from the standard input stream. Any input to the program being debugged is always read from the standard input stream.
undisplay [expression [, expression ...]]
The first form of the command removes all the expressions associated with the last line in the display window.
The second form of the command removes all the expressions associated with a specified number line of the display window. If the line does not exist, an error message is printed.
If the third form is used, the specified expression is removed from the first line in the display window in which the expression appears.
This command simply prints version information about dbxtra.
