Re: PATCH [gcc 4.3]: Add ability to generate DWARF pubtypes section


Yes, the Apple GDB group specifically requested the pubtypes
information; we've already incorporated it (nearly the same implementation)
into Apple's GCC, and the GDB group is already using it.

Attached is a modified version of the original patch I submitted a few

section.

I gather that Darwin is hoping/planning at some point to make use of pubnames/pubtypes. I'd like to hear opinions about enabling this on every DWARF target by default; that way, perhaps the FSF GDB will be able to do this too.
