Is there a way, or .inc file, that allows you to compile the program and include debug information. You guys know how much i like using pictures, so here is one of what i'm looking for. I noticed that a visual c++ file is compiled, it has another file with a .pdb extention; apperently used for the debug information. I understand that it would cause bloat, but, it would be useful for integration into the IDE for FASM.

Yes, with the debug info, it saves the varible names, function names. It pretty much saves the source code into the exe. It is bloated, i know, but it will allow for a much easier dissassembly with IDA or other programs.

I don't know much about debug informations, but I noticed that my .exes contains only paths to source files, not the sources itself (otherwise it will get tens of megs in size). I use PDB format.
