[Dwarf-Discuss] DWARF2 - Endianity issues for DW_AT_bit_offset fields
Mon Sep 5 09:15:04 GMT 2011
In DWARF2, I have some trouble understanding why GCC is generating negative offsets for DW_AT_bit_offset field of structure using bitfields (C language). The target is little-endian.
Incidentally I happen to come across the endianity issues discussed in http://dwarfstd.org/ShowIssue.php?issue=081130.1&type=closed3
It mentions the original problem described in three emails -
Brender email of 2008-05-17
Robinson email of 2008-05-19
Allen email of 2008-07-07
I tried searching them in dwarf-discuss archives but could not find. Can someone give me the links to the above conversations?
