+.SH NAME
+pdb2mdb \- Program Database to Mono Debugging Symbol converter.
+.SH SYNOPSIS
+.B pdb2mdb
+pdb_file
+.SH DESCRIPTION
+This tool is used to convert debugging symbols generated by
+Microsoft's compilers into debugging symbols that can be consumed by
+Mono's runtime.
+.PP
+Program Database files are files that end with the extension .pdb and
+are associated with a library or executable (a .dll or .exe file).
+This format was until recently not documented so Mono used its own
+file format for storing debugging information, the Mono debugging
+format.
+.PP
+Just like PDB files Mono Debugging information is stored in files that
+reside side-by-side with a program executable or a library.
+.PP
+You can use the pdb2mdb tool to transform these PDB files into MDB
+files that Mono can then consume to debug programs or provide
+line-number information for stack traces or exceptions.
+.SH LICENSE
+The
+.I pdb2mdb
+tool is released under the terms of the Microsoft Public License
+(MS-PL).
+.AUTHORS
+JB Evain wrote the tool. The PDB reading support came from Microsoft
+Common Compiler Infrastructure.
