Section, pg 147
DWARF5 Entry Pool

Editorial Change requested.


This requests a minor clarification of the wording.
The data in an entry pool is
    abbrev code

    attribute values as defined by the abbreviations for that code
    (the abbrevs are in the name table abbrev section of course).


DWARF5 text page 147:

Lines 8-11
"Each index entry in the series begins with an abbreviation
code, and is followed by the attributes described by the
abbreviation declaration for that code. The last index 
entry in the series is followed by a terminating entry whose
abbreviation code is 0."

The 'attributes' themselves are not in the entry pool,
they are in the abbrev section of the name table.

So, for greater clarity of this paragraph:

"is followed by the attributes described by the"

"is followed by the index attribute values described by the"
