Hi all,

I've finally succeeded in buildin gdb-archer on windows using mingw. I
wanted to look how things are working using dwarf-3 debug info.

Jonas, are there any things I could try using dwarf-3 which should not
work using dwarf-2/stabs? Or somehing I really need Archer for?

There are quite a few things that don't work using -gw3, though. Like
evaluating simple (local) variables. Breakpoints and stepping through
the code does work.

Shall I try to make simple examples and file bug-reports? Is -gw3
supposed to work on windows at all? (Yuri?)
