what is a .dbgsym file?

In a software development project, debugging refers to tests and improvements or changes done to the code of an application, and these are done to ensure that there are no bugs in the code of the program. Debug symbols files are classified as data files and primarily used by developers as debugging files of some Unix-based applications. These files are affixed with the .dbgsym extension, and the data stored in these DBGSYM files consists of symbols included in error report logs generated after an application crash. These symbols are referenced by the application to display the appropriate debugging symbols associated to particular issues encountered by the corresponding application. The DBGSYM format was developed to provide Unix-based application developers with quicker and more convenient bug tracking capabilities. Users of Microsoft Windows-based systems can use Microsoft Notepad and Microsoft Wordpad to open and view the content of a DBGSYM file.

applications that open a .dbgsym file

Microsoft Notepad

Microsoft Notepad

Notepad is a basic text editor used to create plain documents. It is commonly used to view or edit text (.txt) files, and a simple tool for creating Web pages, and supports only the basic formatting in HTML documents. It also has a simple built-in logging function. Each time a file that initializes with .log is opened, the program inserts a text timestamp on the last line of the file. It accepts text from the Windows clipboard. This is helpful in stripping embedded font type and style codes from formatted text, such as when copying text from a Web page and pasting into an email message or other “What You See Is What You Get” text editor. The formatted text is temporarily pasted into Notepad, and then immediately copied again in stripped format to be pasted into the other program. Simple text editors like Notepad may be utilized to change text with markup, such as HTML. Early versions of Notepad offered only the most basic functions, such as finding text. Newer versions of Windows include an updated version of Notepad with a search and replace function (Ctrl + H), as well as Ctrl + F for search and similar keyboard shortcuts. It makes use of a built-in window class named edit. In older versions such as Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me and Windows 3.1, there is a 64k limit on the size of the file being edited, an operating system limit of the EDIT class.

a word of warning

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .dbgsym. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
