|[cdt-dev] Something for DSF GDB feature-parity with CDI GDB?|
I just figured out that the CDI GDB does not suffer (just by fortune, I guess) a bug in gdb 7.x, that the DSF GDB runs into: http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=11407 In the worst - but not quite unusual case - the variables view remains empty for the entire duration of the function or method you debug, if - You use a gdb 7.0 later - And have pretty printers for some local variables The difference between CDI GDB and DSF GDB simply is that CDI GDB does not print the values with -stack-list-locals. I had a quick look and tested it in my C++ debug session and think DSF GDB could possibly also live without printing values in -stack-list-locals. I couldn't see any usage of the value. My personal impression after working a couple of days with DSF GDB and gdb 7.x plus STL pretty printers is that I should not switch from CDI to DSF. So my question, is this a bugzilla for the feature-parity with CDI? I happily enter one. Jens.
