digitalmars.D.debugger - Visual D debugger tuple _expand_field

_expand_field

takes up a huge amount of space for no reason. I think tuple scan 
be safely listed like arrays. We know they are tuples, no need to 
display _expand_field=, it just takes up a lot of space in the 
display for no reason, specially if there are several elements in 
the tuple.

This is the result of the compiler lowering the tuple to a number of variables __<varname>_field_<index>. No info is generated about this being a structure-like compound. I have added support to the debugger to recombine these variables to an expandable array, but it wasn't actually trivial: https://github.com/rainers/mago/commit/451f856fd70a311460af1153ce1a1647059b5d89 It will be in the next release.

Rainer, you worth more money! Thank you for your relentless effort and support, it is highly appreciated, at least by me. Thanks! Arjan
