Good points. So basically you create an individual .PDB file for each source
file with exception of lib.exe case. The lib.exe case worries me a bit.
How doe sthe compiler finds all generated PDBs? Does .OBJ file have the path
to PDB encoded into it?
Actually why do we need a PDB file to be generated for .LIB? LIB is just a
bunch of OBJ files glued together. Passing LIB to the compiler is almost the
same thing as passing the list of OBJ files. I would think that cl.exe
should be able to find PDB files in both cases.
