[Tinyos-help] TinyOS 2.x GDB dollar sign

There is a way to do it but ....

If you do a build with verbose you should see the switch that tells nesc to
use "__".   You can do a search for that switch using "grep" and that will
tell what files it is buried in.

It hasn't been done that way in a long time.   Using $ in symbol names
caused lots of problems when we moved the compiler versions forward.   That
is why we went to __  (double under).

Why are you using TinyOS 1?   That has been supported in many moons.

Current version is TinyOS 2.1.2
