[cdt-dev] RE: DSF GDB and python pretty printers

Thanks Jens, this sounds very exciting.
So, we'll keep "Bug 275238 [debugger][cdi] Pretty print stl gdb and eclipse cdt don't play well"
as a separate effort considered feature-parity with CDI-GDB.  Your new bug (302121) will be going
beyond what CDI-GDB does.I'll keep the old bug assigned to me, but I'll leave it for a little later, to
see how your effort comes along.

Subject: [cdt-dev] DSF GDB and python pretty printers

Hi all,


this is to inform that we are currently working on a patch for DSF GDB to take full advantage of the gdb 7.0 pretty printers. Full advantage in our case means that a python pretty printer can return its own set of children (as the stl pretty printers do), and these children are reflected in the value tree of the variables view.


I opened Bug 302121 to have a place for feedback, progress reporting, and dependency tracking to other bugs in this area. It also contains a rough design description. My hope is that we can contribute something meaningful for Helios. From what I found we still have 4 weeks until API freeze and another 4 weeks to feature freeze, which still feels good.


Marc, regarding your “private” message. This not something that would bring DSF GDB to feature-parity with CDI GDB, it would actually elevate it beyond (because of the child sub-tree). So you might want to treat it differently.
