My team has a multi-threaded Linux application that was written in C#. We have plenty of names for all of our threads. To help with our debugging, we need these names to be visible in GDB. Would that be possible? We know there's a way to do this in Windows but we're not sure in Linux. Thanks!

Use the command prctl with the PR_SET_NAME to name a thread.
