How to debug with dwarf output?

Lately, I am experimenting with a 68k application, trying to compile it for OS4. It uses vbcc to compile, so I am using the same and for now, I am not thinking to switch to GCC.

I managed to compile the application, but unfortunately, it crashes at some point and I thought to use crashlogs to figure out where exactly that happens. I found the awesome guide by Hans at but unfortunately, this relies on having stabs debug output, which doesn't happen with vbcc.

vbcc debug output is in dwarf2 format and is enabled with -g argument when you compile the source code. Does anyone know if there is a way to figure out the crashing code line based on the crashlog information? Is there any good guide out there about it?

Thank you for your help.
