gdb and memory map

is there a way to get GDB to dump memory map so I can see if certain parts of the memory is executable or not (i.e : if heap/stack is executable).

Do you know of a way to do this within GDB session?


EDIT : Solved. Just didn't use gdb, and did instead :
cat /proc/$PID/maps

Cheers. if anyone got a way of doing it within a GDB, feel free to post it here Thanks.
