Re: GDB gnats: c++ bugs

Hi Sami,Tom had me do a search of the gdb bugzilla for all C++ bugs with "ptype"
errors and 1112 popped up on that list. I'm also looking at the
following to verify they are all still valid since most were posted > 3

There are more bugs of course but these are the ones I'll be looking at
When you are at it there are also:
KFAIL: gdb.cp/templates.exp: constructor breakpoint (PRMS: gdb/1062)
KFAIL: gdb.cp/templates.exp: destructor breakpoint (PRMS: gdb/1112)
1111 - ptype prints return value for constructors in templated classes
1112 - can't breakpoint in destructor
1113 - ptype claims that destructors take an int arg
1593 - problem with nested namespaces
1734 - gdb does not store an empty class
1783/2271/2273(all seem to be same) - gdb can't lookup class typedef
when in methods of class
*NOTE - Jim Ingham filed 1783 with a lot of detail and leaves this
"Not sure how to fix this without breaking other legitimate
cases of namespace lookup, however"
1817 - double-colon not understood in typecast
There are also a couple of bugs in the gcc data base concerning gdb:
7932 - Emit debug information about non-type templates
30161 - gcc should generate dwarf info about template.
I have worked through all of the gdb bugs, except 1593, verifying they
are all still around. I have yet to look at the gcc ones, not sure yet
if there is any connection between those 2 and some of gdb bugs.
I'll try to come up with "finger in the breeze" estimates tomorrow.
