Fix and continue was done at a "low level" to support the C-family of languages.

That said, there are no custom hacks to support this in the Apple ObjC runtime.

Most of the "heavy lifting" to support this is in the Xcode debugger UI and gdb.

I imagine any gdb improvements are being integrated back...

Concerning GCC 3.4 and Objective C:

The changes described indicates that Apple has
contributed back the gcc modifications they made
for edit and continue and other thing used in XCode.

But they also indicated that the Only objective C
runtime supporting theses functions is the NeXT runtime.

That would make gcc3.4 new objective C functions running
on only one platform (Darwin/OSX).

What do you think ? GNUStep on Linux would also gain
much from these modifications.

Anyone has higlight if this is a deliberate intention
to keep other unixes away from the inovations from Apple ?
