This is soooo cool! I guess I will switch to v2 then :-).

My previous remark on this was wrong. This has nothing to do with Windows (e.g.
MinGW does not create PDBs) but more with MSVC. Whenever you specify either /Zi
or /ZI on the MSVC command line then a pdb is made. If you specify /Zd or /Z7
or none of these 4 switches then no .pdb is made. Presumably the same is true
for Intel on Windows.

BTW, the above applies regardless of whether you build and exe, a static lib or
a shared lib.

Thanks a lot & Regards,
