llvm-db status


I would like to ask what is the status concerning llvm-db. When I am
trying to use it I get the following error:
"Error: No supported binding to inferior processes (debugger not

Searching in the mailing list I found that you have discontinued
working on it.

I would like to ask if there are any plans to resume development and
if you are looking for any volunteers to resume this work.

As part of my research I am studying bi-directional debugging (reverse
execution similar to gdb's ). I was hopping I could leverage the
llvm's byte-code level information (data flow information) and
simplicity as part of my project.

New work on it is always welcome, but llvm-db is little more than a command line prompt that is similar to GDB's. It has no actually useful debugger logic.


I found that llvm-db is the front end for lib/Debugger.

I would like to ask you if there is anyone who is actively working on
this problem,
and if you any specific directions/goals/wish list


No one is working on it or even thinking about it. It is so far from being useful that it should probably just be removed.


So there is no practical interest in llbm-db or /lib/Debugger .
I am asking because I would not like to spend time and effort on a part of the API that you are planning to remove.
