75The goal of this work is to add GNU Debugger support for the language \uC and \CFA. To
76achieve this goal for \uC, new extensions are written to provide additional
77support for high-level constructs that are unknown to the GNU Debugger. In addition to the work done for
78\uC, many hooks are added in the GNU Debugger to enable the addition of a \CFA
79demangler.
80
81This report assumes the reader has basic knowledge of compiler construction.
82Background knowledge about how the GNU Debugger works and specific features of \uC and
83\CFA
84are provided in the report.

96I would like to thank Professor Peter Buhr and Thierry
97Delisle for their guidance throughout the development of this project. The
98GNU Debugger's internal manual \cite{Reference5} is used as a guide for the development of
99adding a demangler for \CFA, and \CFA's main page \cite{Reference13} for
100background knowledge and examples.
