I'm about to overhaul dmd's DWARF information and will try to fix the
outstanding issues. It seems (subjective) that the current state is worse than
a year ago.
So in any case we'll need a test suite to avoid regressions.
In the best case we find/write a tool that verifies correct debug information.
Otherwise we could try to automate gdb sessions but this is probably a very
slow test.

A simple solution would be to process the output of readelf or dwarfdump.

Martin, wouldn't that be very DMD-specific?


Only ask because currently I'm in the process of writing a lot of tests for the
GDB testsuite to ensure that GDB behaves correctly for both gdb sessions and
evaluating expressions sent to GDB.

Yeah, that could easily turn into somethin DMD specific.
