[lldb-dev] No C++ language runtime plug-in?

Apple uses the ItaniumABI for C++ on Mac OS X and iOS.  I'm pretty sure Linux does as well.  So if you wire that one up on Linux it should just work.

I see that there is an ItaniumABI plug-in for C++, but no language runtimes get used on my x86_64-based Linux system.  I’m guessing that on Mac OS’s this is handled by the ObjectiveC V2 plugin, but that doesn’t get used on Linux either.
