  • I am searching for the file format specification for "Program database (.pdb)" file type generated by Visual Studio compilers. Therefore it's not specific to any particular Windows version. My objective is to write a light-weight crash reporting tool that can load .pdb files and extract line numbers, function, argument and variable names from the file. To do that, I need the specification of the .pdb file format.
