[fpc-devel] debug information for Variant type

Hello,  FPC developers' list.

Is it known that gdb returns "void" type for the Variant variables when 
STABS debug info is used?

When DWARF is used Variant = TVarData which is also not perfect. I want 
to see only variant value, not the whole record when I debug the program 
in Lazarus. When I need the whole record I can always evaluate TVarData(V).

Is it possible to improve both stabs and dwarf info?

Best regards,
Paul Ishenin.
