020705.1 Jim Blandy Call Frame Instructions Editorial Accepted Jim Blandy


In section 6.4.2, "Call Frame Instructions":

Could the DW_CFA_ instructions be grouped according to their function,
rather than their numeric value?  I think presenting things this way
makes it much clearer what variants of each instruction are available,
and also shows that the instruction set isn't really that complicated.

The disadvantage is that it's harder to check the text against the
list of numeric values in Chapter 7.

DW_CFA_set_loc
DW_CFA_advance_loc
DW_CFA_advance_loc1

DW_CFA_advance_loc4
