Okay, so can we safely conclude, Watcom uses a non-standard version of the
DWARF format as I stated in my original post?
Do you know the exact document (preferable with a location) that GDBs DWARF
format is based on, so I can see if the changes needed would be great or not.
>From my scanning of the watcom sources, it looks like they use:
Unix International Programming Languages SIG, Version 2, Draft 6, dated April
But I could be wrong.
