The Question is:
Where can I find documentation on the format of debug information in C objs? I
found the layout of the obj itself in the Linker Utility Reference Manual.
Unfortunately this only went to the level of directing the linker to store the
next x bytes in the
program image because it's data for the debugger. Now I would like to know how
the symbol table information the debugger needs is stored.
The Answer is :
The Debugger Symbol Table (DST) record format information is included
in the OpenVMS source listings CD-ROM kit, in module DSTRECRDS.SDL
The format of the DST is not documented, and is subject to change.
The OpenVMS Wizard expects to see a version of this module included
on the OpenVMS Freeware V5 media.
Without some background on the problem, any suggestions of available
alternative approaches or options would be difficult at best.
