Debugging - value of char* using typedef

  • I have a question about qt creator C++ debugging on Ubuntu.

    When I'm debugging with qt creator,
    typedef seems to have a problem - printing char*.

    Test code is below:

    typedef char char_t;
    int main () {
      const char* str = "test";
      const char_t* str2 ="test2";
    (In Debugging Window)
    Name    Value   Type
    str     "test"  char*
    str2    116     char_t

    116 means character 't' of string "test".

    char_t is equal to char,
    so I think that const char_t* also should print "test2", not 116.

    This is a qt creator bug?
