	The typevector is still malloc'd, so put it in the free_ptr
	to get it freed.

Thu Jan 22 00:31:03 1987  Richard M. Stallman  (rms at prep)

	* Version 2.0.

	* blockframe.c (get_pc_function_start):
	Understand misc functions.

	* core.c (core_file_command):
	Copy all register contents into the array `registers'
	Save a.out header of executable file in core_aouthdr.
	Print name of executable file that was running, if we know
	where to find it.

	* core.c (exec_file_command):
	Save a.out header in exec_aouthdr and file's mtime
	in exec_mtime.

	* core.c (validate_files): Check that core file's a.out hdr
	matches exec file's.

	* New handling of registers:
	Now all registers are fetched once when the program stops or
	when a core file is selected.  Their contents are kept in
	`registers', an array of bytes.  This is done by
	`fetch_inferior_registers'.  `read_register', etc., just look
	there.  Writing a register works through
	`store_inferior_registers' which writes one or all registers
	from `registers' back to the inferior.

	A register now can have a "raw" data format and a "virtual"
	data format, which may require conversion or even be different sizes.
	The conversion can be different for different registers.
	For example, the 68000 cpu registers need no conversion
	and both raw and virtual size is 4, but the 68881 floating point
	registers have raw size 12 (for extended fmt) and virtual size 8
	(for double).  Macros in the m- file such as REGISTER_BYTES,
	REGISTER_CONVERT_TO_{RAW,VIRTUAL} control these things.

	`read_register' and `write_register' are usable only on registers
	which hold an int and need no conversion (raw fmt = virtual fmt).
	For other registers, `read_register_bytes' is used, or

	* m-sun3.h: Define the 68881 fp registers.
	Know how to recognize insns that save them.
	Make dummy frames save them.

	* core.c (read_register, write_registers): Functions deleted.
	* findvar.c (read_register, write_registers): New functions,
	not the same as the old ones of the same name.

	* findvar.c (supply_register): Function used by
	fetch_inferior_registers, etc., to install the register
	values fetched from the inferior.

	* findvar.c (read_register_bytes, write_register_bytes):
	Read spec'd number of bytes from the byte-array `registers'.

	* findvar.c (read_relative_register_raw_bytes):
	Replaces old function `read_relative_register'; accepts
	address of where to store the contents; # bytes stored is size
	of the specified register in raw format.

	* findvar.c (value_of_register, read_var_value):
	Convert register values and values of register variables
	from raw format to virtual format.

	* findvar.c (locate_var_value): Like `read_var_value' but
	returns value for variable's address.

	* value.h: Add new field VALUE_REGNO to each value.  It holds
	register number to control virtual-to-raw conversion
	for assignments to the value.

	* valops.c (value_assign): Convert data from virtual to raw format
	if value came from a register variable.
	Use read_register_bytes and write_register_bytes.

	* infcmd.c (continue_command): Subtract 1 from arg
	before setting breakpoint's ignore-count.

	* infcmd.c (jump_command): Query if spec'd line is outside
	of the current function.

	* infcmd.c (finish_command): Now finish the selected frame,

	* infcmd.c (set_environment_command): Allow space to separate
	varname and value.

	* infcmd.c (registers_info): Print both raw and virtual data
	format if they differ.  Allow register name as arg.
	Ask for a Newline each 16 registers.

	* inflow.c (kill_inferior): call mark_breakpoints_out.
	* inflow.c ({fetch,store}_inferior_registers for Sun):
	Get the fp registers and store them in right places in
	* inflow.c ({read,write}_inferior_register): Deleted.

	* infrun.c (wait_for_inferior): Single-stepping is not considered
	to have hit a breakpoint unless the pc before the step matches the
	address of the breakpoint.  Necessary on machines where
	breakpoints leave the pc incremented.

	If shell gets SIGSEGV, pass the signal silently to it.

	* m68k-pinsn.c, m68k-opcode.h:
	Add the 68881 instructions.  New operand codes `F', `I', `s'
	and `k' are needed for them.  New place codes `78tcik'.
	NEXTBYTE now skips a word but fetches just a byte.
	Explicit sign-extension removed from NEXTBYTE and NEXTWORD.
	Various changes to implement the new operand and place codes.
	print_index changed because displacement-size codes for
	word and long displacement were interchanged.

	* m68k-pinsn.c (convert_{from,to}_68881): Functions added
	to support REGISTER_CONVERT_TO_{RAW,VIRTUAL} on 68000.

	`exec_mtime' and warn if source is newer.

	* source.c (line_info): No arg means use last line listed
	or line following last one this command was used on.
	If from tty, clear out argument so Return is like `i li' without

	* stack.c (frame_info): Print addresses registers are saved at.

	* stack.c (return_command): When asking for confirmation, give
	name of function that will be made to return.

	* valops.c (call_function): If function type is
	pointer-to-function, dereference it to compute return type.
	If pointer-to-object, assume function returns int.
	If char, assume that the value's address is the function address
	(because it's a misc functon).  If int, the value itself is the
	function address.

	* dbxread.c (compare_symbols): Sort register symbols
	before all others.

	* eval.c (evaluate_subexp_for_address): New function like
	`evaluate_subexp' but returns a value for the address where
	the subexpression's value would be located.

	* eval.c (evaluate_subexp_for_sizeof): New function like
	`evaluate_subexp' but returns a value for the size of the subexp.

	* eval.c (evaluate_subexp_with_coercion): Like `evaluate_subexp'
	but coerces arrays to pointers (without taking the time to
	read the array contents).

	* eval.c (evaluate_subexp): Use the three new functions above
	when appropriate instead of calling self recursively.

	as a way to save one register.  Recognize clrw -(sp); movw -(sp)
	after saving regs as a way to save the PS register.  Adjust the
	way to find the starting pc of a stack dummy frame for the fact

	* core.c ({core,exec}_file_name): If no arg, tell user
	what the effect is.

	* dbxread.c (define_symbol): Accept class code 'v'
	for static variable within a function.

	* dbxread.c (read_type): Now allow any plain number or
	pair of numbers in parens, with no code letter.  This means
	define new type same as type with specified number, or define
	it as void if specified number's type is not yet mentioned.

	* m68k-pinsn.c (print_insn_arg): Case of general operand
	in byte insn that happened to be immediate used wrong arg-size.

	and now allows any expression, not just an integer address.
	It now has same format as UNOP_CAST and works almost like it.
	Each place that referred to it has been rewritten
	starting with a copy of the code that handles UNOP_CAST.

	Free and zero out any line_charpos's saved in source symtabs.

	* breakpoint.c (condition_command):
	Parse the condition in the environment of the code where the
	breakpoint is set.  This requires finding the breakpoint
	before parsing, so code is rearranged.

	* dbxread.c (dbx_alloc_type):
	New function given typenums returns the type for those typenums
	or allocates a new, empty type for those typenums and returns it.

	* symtab.c (smash_type_to_{pointer,function}):
	New functions modify an already-allocated type object
	to be a pointer to or function returning some given type.

	* dbxread.c (read_type): Uses dbx_alloc_type in many cases.
	Reading a pointer or function type now works by doing that,
	then reading the value type or type pointed to, then smashing
	it into the type already allocated.  This makes some fwd refs win.
	Likewise for structs and unions.

	* dbxread.c (read_struct_type): Now receives the type object
	as args.  Used to get typenums as args and look up the type

	* dbxread.c (symbol_file_command):

Sun Nov 16 14:59:07 1986  Richard M. Stallman  (rms at prep)

	* values.c (value_field): Was adding in byte offset
	before calling unpack_field_as_long, which itself
	adds in the offset.  Now pass addr of start of structure.

	* infrun.c (normal_stop): Clean up inferior_pid conditionals:
	just return early if no inferior.

Thu Nov 13 15:45:50 1986  Richard M. Stallman  (rms at prep)

	to distinguish the various entries for one header file.

	* dbxread.c (process_one_symbol): Use the `value' of
	a N_BINCL or N_EXCL as the instance code for the header file.

	* dbxread.c (add_{new,old}_header_file):
	Accept an instance code as arg and treat it as if it were
	part of the file name for distinguishing and finding entries.

	* dbxread.c (add_new_header_file, read_type):
	Turn off the header_file_prev_index feature with #if 0.

	* values.c (unpack_field_as_long, modify_field):
	Run-time test to distinguish big and little endian machines
	and do shifting accordingly.

	Ask for confirmation when used with no arg (delete all).

Fri Nov  7 11:23:09 1986  Richard M. Stallman  (rms at prep)

	* infrun.c (start_inferior, wait_for_inferior):
	Eliminate `stop_in_shell' which was not being maintained right.
	New variable `running_in_shell' is set to 1 or 0 when the
	expected SIGTRAPs happen, and is simply examined at other times.

	* infrun.c (wait_for_inferior):
	If get SIGSEGV with running_in_shell == 1, it is sh
	allocating memory.  Pass the signal silently to the shell.

	* core.c (exec_file_command):
	data_{start,end} are adjusted unconditionally when an
	exec file is opened, so closing counter-adjustment is
	now unconditional as well.

	* printcmd.c (x_command):
	Don't erase the expression from the calling args
	if cllaed noninteractively (used to be clobbering
	definitions of user-defined commands).

	* source.c (list_command): likewise.
