Different types of stabs describe the various ways that variables can be allocated: on the stack, globally, in registers, in common blocks, statically, or as arguments to a function.
|Stack Variables||Variables allocated on the stack.|
|Global Variables||Variables used by more than one source file.|
|Register Variables||Variables in registers.|
|Common Blocks||Variables statically allocated together.|
|Statics||Variables local to one source file.|
|Based Variables||Fortran pointer based variables.|
|Parameters||Variables for arguments to functions.|
