std::deque: _EEN_DS not found

std::deque: _EEN_DS not found

I have been having really annoying issues debugging using Visual Studio 2010 with Intel Parallel Studio 2011 (Intel C++ as compiler). One such problem is that variables declared inside loops are not visible most of the time. VS2010 has a known issue with this, but it seems to happen more easily when using Intel C++ as compiler.The problem I would like to report is about Intel C++ removing, somehow, the anonymous enumerated value _EEN_DS defined in std::deque, which is needed to provide debugging information (it is used by the expression found in autoexp.dat). The end result is that every value of the deque displays "(error) | 0". If I compile the same file using Visual C++, then I am able to inspect the deque without problems.Just in case, the common type that I use for the deque is a sort of smart pointer.I even tried adding a line that assigns _EEN_DS to a variable (to use the symbol), but inspection of the container is still broken (probably due to an optimization, even when no optimizations are enabled).

Could you attach a testcase about the _EEN_DS issue? even some code snippets would be helpful.



For this specific issue place a breakpoint at line 64. Both Cl0Seq and HCl0Seq will show "(error) | 0" for each element.

Thanks Paul for the testcase.

I've submitted another bug report (DPD200164055) to the compiler team, will post a news here when there is a fix or work-around if possible.


Hi Paul,

the fix for your issue was included in the Intel Parallel Studio 2011 Update 3. I tried your testcase with the actual Update 4 and it worked for me. I've seen the content of the both variables at line 64.

Hi Alexander.I can confirm that the issue is solved for the provided test case with the latest version of Composer. However, I am now using Intel C++ Studio XE instead of Intel Parallel Studio 2011.I have just tried with a full application we build using Intel's Compiler, and it seems to be working properly as well. I tried a piece of code where the problem was present before, and now I can fully explore all variables, including containers, just fine.Nice work!Pal.

Hi Pal,

thanks for your reply. It's always good to have a confirmation from the customers.
