Package types (1.7.0)

API documentation for debugger_v2.types package.



Represents the breakpoint specification, status and results.


Represents the debugged application. The application may include one or more replicated processes executing the same code. Each of these processes is attached with a debugger agent, carrying out the debugging commands. Agents attached to the same debuggee identify themselves as such by using exactly the same Debuggee message value when registering.


Request to delete a breakpoint.


Represents a message with parameters.


Request to get breakpoint information.


Response for getting breakpoint information.


Request to list active breakpoints.


Response for listing active breakpoints.


Request to list breakpoints.


Response for listing breakpoints.


Request to list debuggees.


Response for listing debuggees.


Request to register a debuggee.


Response for registering a debuggee.


Request to set a breakpoint


Response for setting a breakpoint.


Represents a location in the source code.


Represents a stack frame context.


Represents a contextual status message. The message can indicate an error or informational status, and refer to specific parts of the containing object. For example, the Breakpoint.status field can indicate an error referring to the BREAKPOINT_SOURCE_LOCATION with the message Location not found.


Request to update an active breakpoint.


Response for updating an active breakpoint. The message is defined to allow future extensions.


Represents a variable or an argument possibly of a compound object type. Note how the following variables are represented:

1) A simple variable:

int x = 5

{ name: "x", value: "5", type: "int" } // Captured variable

2) A compound object:

struct T { int m1; int m2; }; T x = { 3, 7 };

{ // Captured variable name: "x", type: "T", members { name: "m1", value: "3", type: "int" }, members { name: "m2", value: "7", type: "int" } }

3) A pointer where the pointee was captured:

T x = { 3, 7 }; T* p = &x;

{ // Captured variable name: "p", type: "T*", value: "0x00500500", members { name: "m1", value: "3", type: "int" }, members { name: "m2", value: "7", type: "int" } }

4) A pointer where the pointee was not captured:

T* p = new T;

{ // Captured variable name: "p", type: "T*", value: "0x00400400" status { is_error: true, description { format: "unavailable" } } }

The status should describe the reason for the missing value, such as <optimized out>, <inaccessible>, <pointers limit reached>.

Note that a null pointer should not have members.

5) An unnamed value:

int* p = new int(7);

{ // Captured variable name: "p", value: "0x00500500", type: "int*", members { value: "7", type: "int" } }

6) An unnamed pointer where the pointee was not captured:

int* p = new int(7); int** pp = &p;

{ // Captured variable name: "pp", value: "0x00500500", type: "int*", members { value: "0x00400400", type: "int" status { is_error: true, description: { format: "unavailable" } } } } }

To optimize computation, memory and network traffic, variables that repeat in the output multiple times can be stored once in a shared variable table and be referenced using the var_table_index field. The variables stored in the shared table are nameless and are essentially a partition of the complete variable. To reconstruct the complete variable, merge the referencing variable with the referenced variable.

When using the shared variable table, the following variables:


T x = { 3, 7 };
T* p = &x;
T& r = x;

{ name: "x", var_table_index: 3, type: "T" }  // Captured variables
{ name: "p", value "0x00500500", type="T*", var_table_index: 3 }
{ name: "r", type="T&", var_table_index: 3 }

{  // Shared variable table entry #3:
    members { name: "m1", value: "3", type: "int" },
    members { name: "m2", value: "7", type: "int" }

Note that the pointer address is stored with the referencing variable and not with the referenced variable. This allows the referenced variable to be shared between pointers and references.

The type field is optional. The debugger agent may or may not support it.
