I fairly sure I saw a clear difference at one point, though it would have been with GCC 3.3 or 4.0. Here if I didn't use -g3, I would get the line number in the source file with a backtrace, but with -g3 I would get the line number inside the inline templated function I was calling on that line. However, it's been some time since I did this and my memory may be faulty. It may be that I was also using -gdwarf-2 when stabs was still the default, and that's where the difference lies. I can't remember when DWARF2 became the default. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
