Re: RFC: DWARF debug tags for gfortran's OOP implementation

Btw, how was the London meeting? Anything interesting to report (Fortran-wise)?

Well, in principle all of those should be handled, I guess.

I don't have any experience with DWARF either, but maybe I'll look
into it, once I have gotten some of the more nasty OOP
bugs/regressions out of the way.

How would one tackle this practically? All the DWARF stuff is
generated in the middle-end, I assume (and probably the type
extension/member function info is already there for C++, right?). So,
the question is: What do we need to do in the front end, in order to
make the middle-end emit the right DWARF info?
