+ <para>Starting with LLDB 12.0.0, remote debugging is supported
+ on &os;. This means that <command>lldb-server</command>
+ can be started to debug a program on one host, while
+ the interactive <command>lldb</command> client connects
+ to it from another one.</para>

+ <para>To launch a new process to be debugged remotely, run
