Description Miloslav Trmac 2003-02-12 15:55:56 EST
Description of problem:
pstruct, a tool to dump C struct layout, does so by examining stabs
debugging directives in gcc output. Since 3.2, gcc defaults to
using DWARF2, not stabs, so pstruct doesn't work at all unless
you explicitly set CFLAGS='-gstabs -S'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Phoebe 8.0.93 + RHN updates

Steps to Reproduce:
1.pstruct /usr/include/sys/stat.h
2.pstruct CFLAGS='-gstabs -S' /usr/include/sys/stat.h
Actual results:
1.no output
2.dump of struct layout, as expected.
