Re: C++ FAIL counts and the effect of demangler fix

Hi Andrew,

I was so tired last night that all I could post was the raw numbers.

Column #2 is gcc CVS version plus a gdb that *includes* Daniel Berlin's
patch to fix demangler compatibility.  This shows that gdb has other
v3 abi problems besides the changes induced by the demangler.

I don't know what those problems are.  It requires someone to roll
up their sleeves and analyze gdb.log files.  I have time to do one
of these per week.  I'm working in order of "most FAILs first" and
I'm on cplusfuncs.exp.

I respectfully disagree.  I think gdb 5.1 needs to be ready for gcc 3.0.
