|What's New in the Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 Release Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 Information Library|
The following features were added or changed in Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 dbx.
dbx now includes macro expansion. For details, see Appendix C, Macros, in Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3: Debugging a Program With dbx, or type help macros at the (dbx) prompt when running dbx.
Object-Oriented Fortran Support:
dbx now supports type extension and polymorphic pointers. This is consistent with C++ support.
The output_dynamic_type and output_inherited_members dbx environment variables now also work with Fortran.
You can now use the -r, +r, -d, and +d options with the print and whatis commands to get information about the inherited (parent) types as well as the dynamic types.
dbx now supports the Fortran allocatable scalar type, in addition to the allocatable array type.
