[Assembly, GCC and GDB] make gdb's "list" command working

    Hello to everybody!

    I write small assembly programs and I've a problem debugging them.

    If I write a C program and I compile it with the -g option, gcc makes also a .dSYM bundle. When I debug the executable file with gdb I can use the list command to see some lines of the code I wrote.

    But if I write an assembly program and I compile it with the -g option, gcc does not make any extra file apart the executable. So when I debug it I can't use the list command because I get the following error:
    No symbol table is loaded. Use the "file" command.

    What should I do to make the list command working with assembly-written programs?

    Thank you in advance for any answer.
