in reply to Perl symbols for debugging?

You can't with Strawberry Perl. GCC symbols are usually embedded in the binary ("striped" is the power word). If your binary doesn't come with them, tough luck. Visual C Perl uses pdb files, which are usually distributed in a separate archive than the binaries. Activeperl 5.16 and older use Visual C and AS has .zips with the pdb files for download. Also windbg can not read GCC symbols. Only gdb can read GCC symbols. Also gdb can not read Visual C/windbg symbols. I suggest sticking with a strictly Visual C compiled process to keep your sanity.
