The initial GDB patch is hereby released. This is very beta, and doesn't know how to demangle all of the D symbols, but it works on the vast majority.

Download the patch http://svn.dsource.org/svn/projects/gdb-patches/downloads/gdb6.3/d-gdb0.1.patch

into your GDB source root directory, then apply it with the command
Code:
patch -p0 < d-gdb0.1.patch


Compile like normal, and enjoy not having to see lots of numbers and underscores in GDB! Be forewarned, however, that the symbol demangling only works if the program is compiled *without* -g. When DMD puts the DWARF2 information into the object files, it lies and says that it's C code. As a result, GDB doesn't run the demangling routines. I've applied to the DWARF working committe for a language number for D, but this will take some time.

With any luck now that we're putting tangible effort into gdb D support, we can guilt Walter into fixing the DWARF2 line number information bug(s).

... This took much much longer than it should have... Oh well... it's kinda working now.

What's up with the "struct String" ?
Doesn't that just muddy the waters ?

Some other things from James Dunne's
original also seem to be missing here ?

I think I will refactor d_demangle out to a
separate file, before back-porting to GDB 5.3...

I created the String struct to simplify things. Made it easier for me to do string manipulations without any memory leaks.
