My first open source project was cv2pdb, a tool that converts old-style
CodeView debug information generated by optlink to a PDB file. Now that
this functionality is more or less available in dmd itself when
compiling to COFF object files, cv2pdb seems to be more popular among
C++ people using gcc on Windows, because it also allows to convert DWARF
to PDB.
