  I would really like to get a clearer understanding of this file.
This file is so full of #ifdef that I never really understood much of it.

   Neverthelees, I once sent a patch (without really expecting that it 
would be accepted)
to allow case insensitive expression parsing which is
included in my patch to the gdb-5.0 version for
support of pascal language.

   See
http://sources.redhat.com/ml/gdb/2000-06/msg00146.html
And also Mark Kettenis answers
http://sources.redhat.com/ml/gdb/2000-06/msg00150.html
and
http://sources.redhat.com/ml/gdb/2000-06/msg00155.html

   No decision to change to POSIX entry points were made since
(unless I missed something, which is of course highly possible)
