#10659 closed bug (fixed)

Handle gcc 4.8.1's DWARF output

Reported by: anevilyak Owned by: anevilyak
Priority: normal Milestone: R1/beta1
Component: Applications/Debugger Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


Along with its switch over to DWARF 4 by default, gcc 4.8.1 has started generating info entries corresponding to rvalue reference types, which we don't currently handle. This needs to be addressed.

Furthermore, it seems it's generating DWARF 4 output without generating a separate debug_types section, which the current implementation did not anticipate. Needs further investigation.

As of hrev46997, handling of gcc4.8's DWARF4 output is functioning again. However, an issue of some form remains when using -fdebug-types-section, the info for complex types such as classes doesn't seem to be getting resolved correctly in some way. Will investigate as time permits, since this was working with 4.7.

Fixed .debug_types handling in hrev46998. Hypothetically our gcc could still be configured to pass -fdebug-types-section by default, but that isn't a hurdle for this ticket.
