Congrats and thanks for an excellent tool!
I've had a great time examining source code by reading your database
files from Python.

My question concerns the macro database.
I've dumped the contents with dumpdb.exe, and
the start_position and end_position seem to refer to the macro symbol
rather then the content of the macro.  Is this intended?


// Line 27 of Myfile.c follows
#define MY_STRING "Some text"

The entry dumped from the .ma file looks like 
MY_STRING 000027.0008 C:/test/Myfile.c;000027.0017 0x0 {} {} {} {}
while I would expect a line like 
MY_STRING 000027.0008 C:/test/Myfile.c;000027.0029 0x0 {} {} {} {}
which covers the content of the macro.  

That would match the behavior of the .fu entries.

Or maybe I'm not seeing something clearly
