[Dwarf-discuss] tag nesting question
Thu Dec 21 11:07:57 GMT 2006
I have been wondering about the rules of nesting tags within tags. I
have noticed that the dwarfdump tool reports constructs like:
1. The GNU C++ compiler nests DW_TAG_subprogram inside
DW_TAG_structure_type for class member functions.
2. The TASKING compiler nests type TAGS like DW_TAG_base_type,
DW_TAG_pointer_type, DW_TAG_union_type or DW_TAG_const_type within
DW_TAG_structure_type when used by one of the struct's fields.
Since the dwarfdump tool check reports these, should I worry or are
these constructs well within the DWARF specification?
Have a good one,
