8 Allowing terminal control flow in CGDB

A user can typically set there control flow behavior by using the stty command like so stty -ixon -ixoff. This will disable control flow on the terminal where CGDB is started. If you want to turn control flow back on you can type stty ixon ixoff. If flow control is on, when the user types Ctrl-s, the terminal stops. When the user types Ctrl-q, the terminal restarts. When using readline, the Ctrl-s character usually does a forward search. So, if you want to get this, or other functionality out of readline, simply turn off control flow and start CGDB.
