Hi Mathias,

I had a look yesterday, but I will need more time
to understand the details of the problem.

We should be able to get this in before the end of
the month.

Thanks again for you patience.

Dear members / committers of the Eclipse CDT project,

I may try again to convince any of the committers of Eclipse CDT to
review the patch for bug 307311 (UTF-8 support for debugging views)
which I've submitted to Bugzilla about 4 months ago.

Bugzilla link:

The review shouldn't take long - it's just about 100 lines of very
cleanly written code (200 including comments), and I also spent much
time testing this. So it really should work. See for a
verification that the patch is actually generally working.

The review might just primarily cover the question whether
MIVarEvaluateExpressionInfo and MIDataEvaluateExpressionInfo
should call
MIConst.getString() then instead of MIConst.getCString() in order to
support Unicode for evaluated expressions as well.

One final note: gdb's charset must be set to either UTF-8 or
in order to enable this patch to correctly recognize all
UTF-8 strings
(should be the default setting anyway on Linux / Mac, but not on
Windows). You may use the gdb commands "set charset UTF-8" or "set
charset ISO-8859-1" for that. More details about this can be found
within the comments I made on the bug report.

Thank you very much for your valued time and work.

Best regards,
Mathias Kunter
