Provides additional information required by the debugger.
The .stabx pseudo-op provides additional information required by the debugger. The assembler places the StringConstant argument, which provides required stabstring information for the debugger, in the .debug section.
The .stabx pseudo-op is customarily inserted by a compiler.
|StringConstant||Provides required Stabstring information to the debugger.|
|Expression1||Represents the symbol value of the character string. This value is storage mapping class dependent. For example, if the storage mapping class is C_LSYM, the value is the offset related to the stack frame. If the storage mapping class is C_FUN, the value is the offset within the containing control section (csect).|
|Expression2||Represents the storage class of the character string.|
|Expression3||Represents the symbol type of the character string.|
The following example illustrates the use of the .stabx pseudo-op:
