Product Version = NetBeans IDE 7.2 (Build 201207171143)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_03
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 22.1-b02
Cygwin gcc 4.5.3
             gdb 4.5.3

During debugging it would be useful to expand a pointer so that the object pointed to is expanded. Hopefully in both the Variable window and when a pointer is highlighted.

That is:

Type * pointer = &object;

Currently, the value in the pointer object is the only thing seen. What is desired is to show the address in pointer, the same as now, and to expand object, the object pointed to.
