[Dwarf-discuss] What values to use for our own attributes
Fri Mar 10 09:25:33 PST 2006
I think the wiki approach would be good.
That said, though, I'm quite willing to insert
vendor-specific values into the dwarf.h SGI publishes
However, I'd need some few words (to me) as documentation
so each such could be properly commented for readers.
(Need not be 'fully documented', I just want the
attribution (who) and what the general concept is).
The word 'Tasking' as it appears in the extensions is quite unclear.
Does that refer to a company? A concept (related to multi-tasking?)?
Or something else. I would want to know (so I could document
in a comment) the company and a clue about the meaning.
It's unclear to me why "Tasking" was chosen: in general
the advice in the spec requests that you name the vendor
(not a concept) and generally all-upper-case is preferred:
HP or GNU or MIPS are examples you will find used.
There are also exceptions to the spelling advice, but
I don't consider the exceptions good choices.
So I don't consider 'Tasking' a good choice as it
ignores the advice in the spec.
