Description Marius Kintel 2000-10-09 12:59:05 UTC
Compile the following program: g++ -g test.cpp -o test

#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
  for (int i=0;i<10;i++) {
    int test = i;


Try running the program in gdb, break it at the printf-line.
Try inspecting the variables i and test. This does not work on my
plain RH7.0-box.

Daniel, could you take a look at this? I've confirmed the problem...

I'm not sure that gdb tries to handle locally instatiated variables, though.

Comment 2 Marius Kintel 2000-10-09 14:40:42 UTC
I compiled the same program on a RH6.2-box (using egcs-2.91.66).
Debugging that executable under RH7.0 works fine, so it looks like
it's g++'s fault.

Looks like it... Jakub?

Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2000-12-31 11:08:14 UTC
Richard Henderson fixed this in
It will appear in gcc-2.96-70
