131017.1 Keith Walker DW_AT_entry_pc missing on some tags in Appendix A Clarification Accepted Keith Walker


Section Appendix A, pg 

The attribute DW_AT_entry_pc is described in section 2.18 "Entry Address".   

In this section it states:

"Any debugging information entry describing an entity that has a range of code 
addresses, which includes compilation units, module initialization, subroutines, 
ordinary blocks, try/catch blocks, and the like, may have a DW_AT_entry_pc attribute
to indicate the first executable instruction within that range of addresses."

However the following tags in the table in Appendix A appear to be missing this attribute:
DW_TAG_catch_block
DW_TAG_compile_unit
DW_TAG_lexical_block
DW_TAG_partial_unit
DW_TAG_try_block
DW_TAG_with_stmt
