For instructions on how to build libunwind, see the README file in the
libunwind source tree. Some notes illustrating the use of libunwind
can be found in the file doc/NOTES.
- This was originally defined specifically for Itanium, but in the
meantime it's being used pretty much for all other platforms, too.
Exception ABI Extensions
- These extensions were defined by H.J. Lu with help from the GCC
and Intel compiler teams to plug some holes which were not covered by
the original C++ ABI spec and caused some compatibility problems.
(Itanium) unwind conventions
- See Chapter 11, ``Stack Unwinding and Exception Handling'' and
Appendix B, ``Unwind Descriptor Record Format''.
- See Section 6.4. Caveat: GCC uses an extended version of what is
being documented here. Some of it has been documented as part of the
Linux Standards Base, but much of it is currently ``documented'' in
the form of source code, only.
