Parsing C enum/structure/union/arrays using -fdump-translation-unit of GCC

+1 vote

I am using the -fdump-translation-unit option of GCC to parse C enum/structure/union/arrays. Consider the below code

enum eDAY
 monday = 0,

enum eDAY day = monday;

I can get all the members of the enumerator parsing the dump of GCC. But if the below declaration was not present

enum eDAY day = monday;

GCC's dump doesn't have any information about the members of the enumerator. The same problem exists with structures/unions etc. How can I solve this problem. Is there some kind of optimization flag which I need to turn off so that GCC parses all the objects even if it is not used ?

I wanted to ask what is the GCC C++ equivalent implementation of Windows _ MyFirst and _MyLast vector pointers?

These give direct access to the vectors first and last element, but they are not present in the GCC implementation of the vector class.

  1. GCC is available in several variations (SJLJ, DW2, SEH). When compiling plain C code (therefore either assuming or explicitly specifying -fno-exceptions), does it make any difference which GCC variation is used?

  2. Further I assume, that if my plain C code was to link to a C++ library which may throw exceptions, then it would matter which GCC variation I use. In that case, I should use the GCC variation that matches with the C++ code exception flavour, I should enable -fexceptions when compiling my plain C code, and the exceptions could
    then propagate over the C code?
