# This script allows to use LLDB in a way similar to GDB's batch mode. That is, given a text file
# containing LLDB commands (one command per line), this script will execute the commands one after
# the other.
# LLDB also has the -s and -S commandline options which also execute a list of commands from a text
# file. However, this command are execute `immediately`: the command of a `run` or `continue`
# command will be executed immediately after the `run` or `continue`, without waiting for the next
# breakpoint to be hit. This a command sequence like the following will not yield reliable results:
#
#   break 11
#   run
#   print x
#
# Most of the time the `print` command will be executed while the program is still running will thus
# fail. Using this Python script, the above will work as expected.
