DWARF Debugging Format

DWARF is a powerful debugging format used on most modern Unix systems. It's heavily associated with the ELF object format (after all, what else would you find near an Elf?).

Yasm will generate debugging information in this format if "-g dwarf2" is specified on the YasmCommandLine. This allows source-level assembly debugging in programs such as gdb.
