210218.2 Tom Tromey Generalize complex number support Enhancement Open Zoran Zaric


Section 5.1, pg 103

GCC can handle complex integers as well as complex floating-point types.
However, DWARF has no way to represent these, as there is only
DW_ATE_complex_float.

One way to fix this would be to introduce a DW_TAG_complex_type,
which would then have DW_AT_type pointing to the base type.
This could deprecate DW_ATE_complex_float.

Perhaps other approaches are worth considering as well.
