Inheriting namespaces

I’d prefer real state space, but for now I’ll have to seattle for C++ namespaces as the only inheritance to tap into. The dwarves now are able to show the wonders of goat guts, oops, of modern C++ techniques hidden behind layers of type within types within templates within namespaces represented in DWARF tags. This time there will be no tool sample output, they wouldn’t be pretty. Just be warned, pull from my kernel.org repo and be sure you have already digested everything you ate in at least two hours. Remember: you’ve been warned.

P.S. yes, there is a typoish message to friends in the northern hemisphere, far from the brazilian winter :o)

No song for 1.0

As part of the review process to get dwarves into Fedora I released 1.0. Numbers are not that much meaningful anyway. In a previous life, as a package pac-man (sorry about the pun, too lame…) in a jungle distro I always looked forward for one dot zero. Even for nfs-server! So, here it goes, one-dot-zero! In a Fedora mirror some day soon!

P.S.: rpms in the usual place.

Virtual doesn’t hurts as much as Real Life: !wii session

Today went with friends to do some non-Wii bowling. What can I say? My fingers are hurting. Yeah, I suck in real life. Nah, back at home listening to some torrents, nevermind I have the CDs for 20 years, just that those Metallica songs are so buried in layers of dust I found it easier to pound my ears with something freshly downloaded 8-) My 5 years old niece still knows nothing about torrents and stuff, but she beats me hands down on the not-so-heavy-as-real-life Wii bowling. She will learn, but lets not hurry her…

Quickies

- Paper for OLS about the dwarf debugging tools written, will be the badly needed documentation for these tools as soon as it is released. Will continue improving it even after presentation at OLS.
- Several new pahole options, for instance look at this
- libdwarves now uses libdwfl, so works well with RELA architectures such as x86-64
