[lldb-dev] Accessing DWARF information from C++

I currently am developing an application where I need to access the
DWARF debugging information of my target process and its loaded .so files.
In more detail, I need to match type information of certain entities
within my code and its dynamically linked libraries.
I already use the lldb scripting bridge in my application, hence I would
like to use lldb's DWARF parsing capabilities in my application, too.
Now, there is no (obvious) way to extract DIEs using the C++ API, so I
need a few hints where to start. Does anyone have a minimal example for
simply dumping DWARF info in a 'readelf -w' manner?
I further discovered another DWARF implementation within the llvm
sources. After some investigation I found this discussion on lldb-dev:
Does anybody know if there is already some effort made to implement a
lldwarf solution as a replacement for both mentioned implementations?
And, after going through the discussion, is it probably better for me to
use the llvm fork?
Thanks in advance!
