Hi Derick,

Again thanks for the speedy comments.

Sorry to hear that issue 416 is languishing, and even more that compile on VC6 is an ordeal in general, with additional obstacles for you personally.

I think it's to your great credit that Xdebug is out there providing a service which so many rely upon. All the more credit for your efforts to make it available across OS platforms and for different versions of PHP.

By way of a note to others who may be galumphing down the same path as me, wanting to suck the Trace output into another tool to analyze it...

I wanted to use "computer format" (with return value) because it is this format that includes a field that distinguishes whether each call is to a built-in function or to a user-defined one. The format=0 output does not.

However, I later realized that this same distinction can be deduced from the format=0 output by noting whether the return record occurs on the line immediately following the call record. If not, then the call must be to a user-defined function.

All other data that appears in the format=1 output can be deduced from the format=0 output.

So I think "problem solved".

Thanks again,

-- Graham
