NAME

       pdb2mdb - Program Database to Mono Debugging Symbol converter.

SYNOPSIS

       pdb2mdb pdb_file

DESCRIPTION

       This  tool  is  used  to convert debugging symbols generated by Microsoft's compilers into
       debugging symbols that can be consumed by Mono's runtime.

       Program Database files are files that end with the extension .pdb and are associated  with
       a  library  or  executable  (a  .dll  or  .exe  file).  This format was until recently not
       documented so Mono used its own file format for storing debugging  information,  the  Mono
       debugging format.

       Just like PDB files Mono Debugging information is stored in files that reside side-by-side
       with a program executable or a library.

       You can use the pdb2mdb tool to transform these PDB files into MDB  files  that  Mono  can
       then  consume  to  debug  programs  or provide line-number information for stack traces or
       exceptions.

LICENSE

       The pdb2mdb tool is  released under the terms of the Microsoft Public License (MS-PL).  JB
       Evain  wrote  the  tool.    The  PDB  reading  support came from Microsoft Common Compiler
       Infrastructure.
