Description Terry Parker 2009-06-15 14:52:23 UTC
The MI command "var-info-path-expression varN.[N]" for a set:<int> returns 
an empty string "" where it should return "int".

This is likely related to but 10252, which concerns var-info-path-expression 
for vectors.

I looked at the cplus_path_expr_of_child() function in varobj.c, and its "struct 
varobj *child" argument actually contains the correct type, but the function 
delegates its work to cplus_describe_child(), which is looking at the set/map 
object as a C++ class rather than a collection.

For indices > 2, gdb gets an out of bounds exception for the index and exits.

This is really the same as 10252.
The issue is that we need to give the printers a way to
supply the path expression to varobj.
