I have a DOS executable which has been compiled with Watcom C/C++ 10.0.

That EXE has debug symbols inside. I was wondering if there is any tool that allow to dump or extract that debug information (eg : to a text file) I'm looking to something like TDUMP for Borland C/C++ compiler.


OpenWatcom includes the wdump utility which can dump the debug info (if it's present).

  • It worked! Thanks. I had to wrote wdump -Dx somefile.exeto get what I wanted. – tigrou Aug 9 '16 at 16:21

This web site: http://www.exphys.jku.at/Skripten/PK_PROG/Watcom.pdf

is a PDF that (step by step) explains how to debug such files.

  • Thanks, but I don't want to debug the file, only to dump the actual debug information in order to re-import it to IDA. – tigrou Aug 9 '16 at 6:05
