Less cursory testing shows that it doesn't work fine. The problem is
I recommend that you discuss this issue on gdb@ rather than the Archer
list, because the port originates from GDB, not Archer:
I checked my GDB cvs checkout and could not find any trace of gdb/
machoread.c nor of gdb/darwin-nat.c. That's why I thought it was
Archer-specific. But now I do see that it's mentioned in the Changelog
file. Apparently, because I started my cvs checkout from a tbz source
snapshot, I had some kind of sticky tag. I've now done a "cvs up -A",
and now I have the file. Sorry for the trouble.
I think you have
more chances of reaching some developers that know a little more about
MacOS. The author of the MacOS port is Tristan Gingold, and I'm not
he's either on gdb@ or archer@, so I'd recommend CC'ing him in your
report (gingold /AT/ adacore.com).
Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.
The reviewer was Stan Shebs, who used
to work at Apple...
Yes, I remember him. He used to their main GCC guy, if I remember
correctly (or at least the most vocal one :)
PS: I'll take a look at your first patch in a moment, and I expect to
be able to approve it for inclusion in the FSF tree.
