Re: GDB and watcom (Daniel Berlin)

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
12, 1993

But I could be wrong.
