Everyone’s heard that the universe is expanding. Why? Perhaps it’s to make room for larger and larger application programs, and the disk space needed to store their debugging information. This paper describes a relatively new approach for the DWARF Debugging Standard - Split DWARF.
Split DWARF is a new approach that dramatically shrinks the space required to store DWARF debug information, speedsup application link times, reduces system memory and IO requirements, and speeds-up debugger startup.
