Indeed! Does this enable VS debugging of D programs?
This enables using the MS C runtime for Win32 programs, but you
could already use VS for debugging thanks to cv2pdb (also written
by Rainer!). Though, now that the debug information is not
channeled through the CodeView format, it might be more accurate.
Also, what's the deal on Win64? -- Andrei
Win64 is COFF-only because OPTLINK is 32-bit-only, so PDB was
DMD's only Win64 debugging format (not that that's a bad thing).
