Re: [cdt-dev] memory space DSF service

OK. I've opened

with my first draft of the interface. I would appreciate if those that expressed interest could review and comment on any additional memory space attributes they need.

Subject: [cdt-dev] memory space DSF service

I wanted to poll the CDT debugger community to see whether others
have a need for a DSF service that provides information on a memory
space. In 7.0, I added to DSF the ability to gather the available
spaces from a memory context (see IMemorySpaceDMContext). Currently,
this is used by the memory views.

In our commercial product, we need to go further and get information
on a space, e.g., is it code or data, what's its range, what is the
addressable size of the memory. Now, there are no features currently
in CDT that would use such a service, but I suspect many of you are
dealing with targets that have memory spaces and either have
home-grown variants or will eventually need such a service. Please
speak up if so. If there's enough interest, I'll open a bugzilla
report to add the interface and we can hammer out the specifics there.
