    I 've just dowloaded GDB 5.0 and use it to debug a fortran subroutine.
    I've noted that value of complex variables or arrays are incorrectly
    outputed by the print command, and also within the DDD frontend.
    When inspecting a complex variable V, the value printed is
    (Real(V),Real(V)) instead of (Real(V),Imag(V)). This behavior was
    already present in the previous version of gdb, but this time I think
    I've corrected it and send you the (very) small patch - one line to

    I'll try to follow the guidelines for this, but it's the first time I
    contribute and English is not my native language, so don't expect too

You did great.  Thanks.

    Here is the Changelog

	    * f-valprint.c : Corrected f_val_print function for TYPE_CODE
    (type) = TYPE_CODE_COMPLEX

    Hope this help, and congratulation for the 5.0 release: it seems at lot
    more stable when interacting whith DDD
