- Subject: BUG: MI reporting wrong attributes for casted variables
Assume a variable like
unsigned int myValue;
It is possible to create a casted MI variable like
1096-var-create - * (int)myValue
GDB reports this to be an editable variable:
But in fact, it is not. GDB does not allow assiging values to casted
variables. So GDB should not report this to be editable.
1100-var-assign var4 1
1100^error,msg="mi_cmd_var_assign: Could not assign expression to varible
This bug is causing trouble in Eclipse CDT because casted vars show up as
editable when they are not.
