- Subject: MI: getting qualified type name
is it possible, using MI, to obtain fully qualified type of a variable. Say,
I have variable of type std::string. I want KDevelop to invoke special
display code for all variables of that type. However, there's what MI gives
(gdb) -var-create MYTEST * s
(gdb) -var-info-type MYTEST
The name is not qualified, and it's not repliable to invoke special display
code for all types named 'string'. The only way to obtain the desired
information seems to be 'ptype' command, and parsing output of that CLI
command seems problematic.
