hi,
 the following program has a stack array overran and static arrary overran .
overran of this kind may be a very hard to find bug in a software .so can
gcc provide extra information for other debugging tools to check if an
array is overran ?
program.c:

int static[5];

int main(void)
{
  int stack[5];

  static[5] = 0;
  stack [5] = 0;
          
  return 0;
}

i have no idea about whom to ask ,gdb or gcc or both ??
