||D Language Support
There is an emerging language called D. It is largely compatible with C,
thus it is already (sort of) capable of generating DWARF information.
According to http://www.tiobe.com/tpci.htm, as of writing, it's the 30th
most popular language. This language is currently used on Linux, Windows,
and OS X. There is a gcc-derived compiler in the works, and we expect it
will eventually become part of the gcc distribution.
More information about D is available at http://www.digitalmars.com/d
Add a Language identifier for the D language.
-Additions to DWARF3 Spec as of November 12, 2003:
Add to Figure 8 ["Language Names"; 3.1.1, pp. 46-47]:
Add to Figure 27 ["Language encodings"; 7.12, p. 153]:
Doesn't really matter what the number is... Unfortunately 0x000d is taken ;)
If possible, I would like similar additions made to the DWARF2 spec.
I'm trying to put D support into GDB, so these additions would be invaluable
in getting D patches added to GDB's main tree.
Accepted, correcting typo: DW_LANG_ObjC should be DW_LANG_D.
