View Full Version : An issue with the viewing of content of stl::map

06-21-2008, 06:34 AM
Hello everybody,

When I was using TotalView v6.xxx I was able to dive objects containing stl::map members, open those maps and dive into value of some element of the stl map. Now I've been trying to use TotalView v8.xxx and it does a lot for stl: open maps and show content but doesn't allow to dive. For example a value of some element of a map is a pointer to some structure. I double click on pointer to take a look at the strcture but debugger writes "Dive failed. Element address invalid" instead. The thing is that I observe the same message even in case when I just double click on some map element. It was very useful feature for stl debugging so I miss it a lot!

Does some one have the same problem? How can I resolve it?

Thanks a lot,

Hello Andrey,

The problem you describe sounds like a bug, either in the compiler or TotalView itself. If you still have the older TotalView available, and it is still able to dive on the pointer, then it would definitely suggest the problem is in TotalView. If you have a small test case you can provide we would be glad to take a look at it. I would suggest sending it to
