Expanded Reference by Stab Type
*******************************

   For a full list of stab types, and cross-references to where they are
described, see Note: Stab Types.  This appendix just duplicates
certain information from the main body of this document; eventually the
information will all be in one place.

   Format of an entry:

   The first line is the symbol type (see `include/aout/stab.def').

   The second line describes the language constructs the symbol type
represents.

   The third line is the stab format with the significant stab fields
named and the rest NIL.

   Subsequent lines expand upon the meaning and possible values for each
significant stab field.  `#' stands in for the type descriptor.

   Finally, any further information.
