I am working on a llvm based compiler frontend in which, I am using the packed_decimal type encoding.
During using the llvm DIBuilder, I found out that the interface to create BasicType with packed_decimal encoding(DW_ATE_packed_decimal), is missing all the related encoding stuff,
DW_AT_picture_string – should be MDString Node – not decided yet.
DW_AT_decimal_sign – May be in DIflags with mask (5 distinct inputs), like FlagDSOverPunch, etc
DW_AT_digit_count – unsigned integer, like unsigned DigitCount
DW_AT_decimal_scale – integer, like int DecimalScale
I am looking to add this info in DIBasicType class (DebugInfoMetadata.h) and would appreciate advice on above location.
