The original Microsoft CodeView is a full-featured debugger that is designed for 16-bit Real-mode programs. There is a learning curve, but you can begin using it right away with just a few simple commands. Yasm cannot currently generate debugging information for the 16-bit CodeView Debugger.

Yasm uses "CodeView 8" or "cv8" as the name for the Visual Studio debugger. Yasm can generate debugging information in this format by using "-g cv8" on the YasmCommandLine. This allows source-level debugging of assembly code within Visual Studio.
