MS assembler support

Hi, Chris

If the assembler is a limitation, the best solution would be to add a direct PECOFF writer. There is a start of direct ELF and Macho writers already in the tree. They are not production quality, but could be a useful place to start looking.

Well, maybe. But in any case I doubt there will be 'open' support for CV debug format :slight_smile:

CV is actually not that difficult a format.

I hacked support for PDB's in GDB about 10 years ago (IE well before
there were MS supplied libraries to read it), and it only took a few
weeks. (It never made it into GDB's mainline because the people I did
it for ended up switching compilers anyway, so i dropped it)
PDB hasn't changed significantly since then.
