Unicode applications are more and more common.
It's really a severe problem that GDB is unable to print arrays of wchar_t .

It would be extremehely useful to be able to do "print mywchar_tArray" in GDB. Please add support for it !!

Searching with google give some workarounds to this big GDB limitation but all proved to be far from comfortable for every-day use.

Thanks indeed for the great work!
