- Subject: Upgrading from old gdb version
I'm trying to upgrade a proprietary target from an old
(well ancient) version of gdb (version 5.3) to the current
version. In some areas, there have been major changes,
for example, in handling frames and analyzing a function
Looking at the documentation, there are several places in
the chapter on Target Architecture Definition which either
are empty (e.g., Frame Interpretation) or there are notes
which say that the documentation is obsolete (Raw and
Virtual Register Representations). The notes refer to the
bug database and AR index. Unfortunately, I can't really
see anything in either which give me much of a clue.
Can someone suggest a starting point?
