The HP VMS Debug Team is willing take a look at implementing location
lists. I was asked to inquire if there is subset of expression
attributes. I scanned through gnatlib and found only these in the
.debug_loc section. Are there more possible? Is it a waste of time to
try to come up with a complete subset?
There are plenty more possible. The opcode language is
probably Turing complete. Those are the ones you'd expect
to see used solo, though.
I guess for now we should just assume one expression is
fine, but location lists aren't. If more trouble appears,
we can deal with that (i.e. get it fixed ;-).
