Using WinDbg with Borland

I'm using this tool and I must say it's great! Of course you just get the info that is there in the map file. Therefore no info about local variables. But with a bit knowledge, you can oracle those from the stack memory :-)

brings microsoft-compatible debugging to Borland. With "map2dbg" you can convert from a borland MAP file to a ms DBG file. This lets you use standard debugging tools like DrWatson and imagehlp.dll. For instance, in "calldemo" we use it to generate a callstack of the current program. Helpful for debugging clients a thousand miles away.
