Certanly! .pdb doesn't documented very well :-). Moreover, microsoft
changes its internal structures from version to version.
But, my point is to use gdb as alternative to microsoft windbg. In my case
I prefer GDB because of its open standards. Also I suppose GDB has
enough functionality to write something like extenstions, macroses to
enhance the specific analysis.
