GPL-free symbol lookup code for MinGW

[9th September 2012]

I've just published a new repository on bitbucket for a library called dbg. It contains a collection of high-level assert macros, code for call frame collection, symbol lookup and exception tracebacks.

I've already published a similar library, stack_trace, but this one contains GPL-free code for symbol lookup on MinGW targets. This is achieved by skimming the DWARF debug information directly, rather than going through libbfd. dbg, as is the case with the majority of my code, is licensed under the Boost Software License, making it somewhat more friendly for use in closed-source software.

I mention it here because I know from email correspondance that a number of people were interested in seeing this.
