[Mono-dev] End line/column information in symbol files

I am seeing the starting line and column numbers, just not the ending ones. You are saying that the compiler is not providing these values? The place exists where to put these values in the symbol file but they always seem to be -1.

Is there a reason this is not supported? Would a patch to fix this to welcomed?

  There is a tool named mdbdump in mcs/class/lib/net_4_5/mdbdumb.exe which can be used to dump the contents of .mdb files. In this case, mcs currently doesn't generate column numbers, so sdb cannot return them.

When debugging our program on Linux with Mono 3.10, I’ve noticed that the source code sequence points that the soft debugger gives never include valid end line or end column numbers. They are always set to -1. Is this because the mono compiler doesn’t include these values in the mdb symbol files? Perhaps I’m doing something wrong when invoking the soft debugger library?
