Summary 0035017: [Feature] XML node dump
Revision 2019-02-06 00:28 by J. Gareth Moreton
Description This feature has been discussed a little bit in the fpc-devel message board. If you build the compiler with the define "DEBUG_NODE_DUMP", all source files compiled with it will have their intermediate nodes dumped to an XML file (which have .ppx extensions) - this feature is useful for compiler debugging and development, as being formatted into an XML file, trees can be expanded and collapsed at will with an appropriate viewer, making the nodes easier to navigate and analyse.
