[lldb-dev] Calling multiply defined symbols

Hi all,

We have a process that contains multiple definitions of the same 
function.  The function in question is declared 'static extern' in a 
header and included in multiple compilation units.
This causes some confusion for lldb expression parser when trying to 
invoke the function by name, since it doesn't know which of the multiple 
(identical) implementations to call.  In this case the expression 
evaluation fails and informs the user 'call to 'abs' is ambiguous' in my 

The function in question could be changed to resolve the error, but I'd 
be interested to know if there is a way to resolve such an ambiguity 
from the LLDB's CLI.
Alternatively, should there be an precedence order that LLDB could be 
made to obey in the case of this ambiguity?
