- Subject: ARM abort() core files
About 3 years ago (August, 2008) there was a discussion here about (not) getting a backtrace from abort(3) on ARM:
That thread discussed why core files generated from a call to abort() do not have a stack to review and some possible approaches for modifying the compiler. I can find no resolution to that discussion nor any other discussion of the topic.
Our toolchain vendor is currently only providing GCC 4.4 and I have verified the issue still exists. They informed me today that GCC 4.6 "may be better about it". Can someone confirm that a change has been made and where I can find more information about it?
