You should give us some more and precise information
what you want to do and what you did.

One important thing is which program produces for the
stabs debugging information?

I for instance use the patch for gcc (which will be similar
in the coming new gcc version) to produce stabs debugging
information and it works perfectly. I will never go back
to use the SDB (this is the native COFF debugging format)
debugging information.

Or have you made the mistake to have some files with
stabs debugging and some with SDB debugging?

Or do you try to use the symify.exe program for a program
which have stabs debugging?

This is now again a little bit confusing for me. It sounds for
me that you have some object files with stabs debugging information
but these files were not made by you.

Do you mean to get a traceback when you debug the program or
when you simply run it?
