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  run-
       time.

       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-num-
       ber 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.
