PR# 19438 Change to routine argument name not updated in debugger on recompile
Problem Report Summary
Environment: Linux Mint 17.1
Synopsis: Change to routine argument name not updated in debugger on recompile
I changed an argument name in a routine from `name' to `a_name' and made a local variable `name'. Later I changed my mind and decided I didn't need the local variable. So renamed argument to `name'. However the debugger still picks up the argument as `a_name' not matter that I went and change `name' to `other_name' and recompiled. I was only able to fix the problem by commenting out the routine completely, recompiling and then commenting it back in again.
Change the name of a routine argument. Recompile and and then set a break point in the routine and run the debugger. Observe the argument name.
