UIView frame and bounds in GDB

I was trying to examine the frame property of a UILabel in the XCode debugger (GDB). Since I only do iPhone app development on occasion I tend to forget common tasks. I tried many different commands and none worked. I searched for posts on how to do this and found nothing specific.

So, here is how you do it:
(gdb) print (CGRect)[self.label frame]
$1 = {
origin = {
x = 20,
y = 20
size = {
width = 280,
height = 21

I have a View Controller that has an UILabel *label.

@interface TextViewController : UIViewController {
IBOutlet UILabel *label;

@property (nonatomic, retain) UILabel *label;
