Andrew Burgess - May 11, 2019, 11:46 p.m.
Eli,

This iteration includes updated documentation that fixes almost all of
the issues you raised.  The only thing I haven't done is collapse all
of the command sub-sections into a single sub-section.  I looked
through most of the existing MI commands and they all seem to be one
command per sub-section, so I wasn't entirely sure how to layout a
merged entry, nor if a merged entry was inline with the style for MI
commands.

---

I have also tweaked the code a little in this version, the changes
around how a catchpoint is reported when it is initially setup has
changed, the output is not more inline with other breakpoints.  See
the changes in print_mention_exception_catchpoint, and the new
scoped_restore restore_breakpoint_reporting in
mi_cmd_catch_exception_event.  Otherwise the code is unchanged.

Thanks,
Andrew

Adds some MI commands to catch C++ exceptions.  The new commands are
-catch-throw, -catch-rethrow, and -catch-catch, these all correspond
to the CLI commands 'catch throw', 'catch rethrow', and 'catch catch'.

Each MI command takes two optional arguments, '-t' has the effect of
calling 'tcatch' instead of 'catch', for example:

   (gdb)
   -catch-throw -t

Is the same as:

   (gdb) tcatch throw

There is also a '-r REGEXP' argument that can supply a regexp to match
against the exception type, so:

   (gdb)
   -catch-catch -r PATTERN

Is the same as:

   (gdb) catch catch PATTERN

The change in print_mention_exception_catchpoint might seem a little
strange; changing the output from using ui_out::field_int and
ui_out::text to using  ui_out::message.

The print_mention_exception_catchpoint is used as the 'print_mention'
method for the exception catchpoint breakpoint object.  Most of the
other 'print_mention' methods (see breakpoint.c) use either
printf_filtered, of ui_out::message.  Using field_int was causing an
unexpected field to be added to the MI output.  Here's the output
without the change in print_mention_exception_catchpoint:

    (gdb)
    -catch-throw
    ^done,bkptno="1",bkpt={number="1",type="breakpoint",disp="keep",
                           enabled="y",addr="0x00000000004006c0",
                           what="exception throw",catch-type="throw",
                           thread-groups=["i1"],times="0"}

Notice the breakpoint number appears in both the 'bkptno' field, and
the 'number' field within the 'bkpt' tuple.  Here's the output with
the change in print_mention_exception_catchpoint:

    (gdb)
    -catch-throw
    ^done,bkpt={number="1",type="breakpoint",disp="keep",
                enabled="y",addr="0x00000000004006c0",
                what="exception throw",catch-type="throw",
                thread-groups=["i1"],times="0"}

Understood.

So what GDB shows when the catchpoint triggers doesn't include the
exception's type, is that right?  That's a pity; I expected it to show
the type, which could then be compared against the regexp.  Oh well.

> +~"Catchpoint 1 (exception thrown), 0x00007ffff7ae00ed

It says "thrown" both for "throw" and "rethrow"?  So there's no way to
distinguish between these two?

> +~"Catchpoint 1 (exception thrown), 0x00007ffff7ae00ed

And the same here? not "exception caught"?

The documentation parts are OK, thanks.

I've now pushed this patch with the doc fixes that Eli suggested.
