Description Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2017-09-21 08:43:11 UTC
See bug #56489 for a test case.

Scenario: a big app, with one particular assembly which is enormous. The big app hits bug #1102 (too much code), but only for debug builds, most likely because the debug info for the enormous assembly is pushing it over the limit. The idea would be to make it possible to not generate debug info for specific assemblies (right now it's an either all or nothing choice), which could be used in this scenario to lower the executable size enough (and for the test case the app developer doesn't care about debugging the enormous assembly, since it wasn't his).
