11.8.7 GIMPLE_DEBUG

— GIMPLE function: gimple gimple_build_debug_bind (tree var, tree value, gimple stmt)

Build a GIMPLE_DEBUG statement with GIMPLE_DEBUG_BIND of subcode. The effect of this statement is to tell debug information generation machinery that the value of user variable var is given by value at that point, and to remain with that value until var runs out of scope, a dynamically-subsequent debug bind statement overrides the binding, or conflicting values reach a control flow merge point. Even if components of the value expression change afterwards, the variable is supposed to retain the same value, though not necessarily the same location.

It is expected that var be most often a tree for automatic user variables (VAR_DECL or PARM_DECL) that satisfy the requirements for gimple registers, but it may also be a tree for a scalarized component of a user variable (ARRAY_REF, COMPONENT_REF), or a debug temporary (DEBUG_EXPR_DECL).

As for value, it can be an arbitrary tree expression, but it is recommended that it be in a suitable form for a gimple assignment RHS. It is not expected that user variables that could appear as var ever appear in value, because in the latter we'd have their SSA_NAMEs instead, but even if they were not in SSA form, user variables appearing in value are to be regarded as part of the executable code space, whereas those in var are to be regarded as part of the source code space. There is no way to refer to the value bound to a user variable within a value expression.

If value is GIMPLE_DEBUG_BIND_NOVALUE, debug information generation machinery is informed that the variable var is unbound, i.e., that its value is indeterminate, which sometimes means it is really unavailable, and other times that the compiler could not keep track of it.

Block and location information for the newly-created stmt are taken from stmt, if given.

— GIMPLE function: tree gimple_debug_bind_get_var (gimple stmt)

Return the user variable var that is bound at stmt.

— GIMPLE function: tree gimple_debug_bind_get_value (gimple stmt)

Return the value expression that is bound to a user variable at stmt.

— GIMPLE function: tree * gimple_debug_bind_get_value_ptr (gimple stmt)

Return a pointer to the value expression that is bound to a user variable at stmt.

— GIMPLE function: void gimple_debug_bind_set_var (gimple stmt, tree var)

Modify the user variable bound at stmt to var.

— GIMPLE function: void gimple_debug_bind_set_value (gimple stmt, tree var)

Modify the value bound to the user variable bound at stmt to value.

— GIMPLE function: void gimple_debug_bind_reset_value (gimple stmt)

Modify the value bound to the user variable bound at stmt so that the variable becomes unbound.

— GIMPLE function: bool gimple_debug_bind_has_value_p (gimple stmt)

Return TRUE if stmt binds a user variable to a value, and FALSE if it unbinds the variable.
