Hi, I understood that it's possible to use WinDBG with DMC generated  
files. How can I get WinDBG to recognize the source code?

I only get the ASM output. Thanks Robert

Compile with -g. But you need the windbg.exe that comes with DMC++.

So, this is an older windbg.exe version?

Yes.
 Are there are any plans to keep 
 pace with windbg.exe development?

Not when that one works fine! (It's expensive, time consuming, and hard to see the benefit to try keep up with Microsoft's ever-changing and undocumented debug formats.)

What is the best source of documentation for the DMC compatable
version of the debugger.  I would like to implement it in the
latest Eclipse/CDT to work the way it does in the old Symantec IDDE
but I can't find complete docs.  Any advice appreciated.

There really isn't anything other that what you can find with google.

 Just of interest, how did you do a special WinDbg version? Did MS give 
 you source-access to it?

No, I don't have source to it. It's just an older version of it.
