It’s not even the MSVC compiler, it’s the MS linker’s fault! And even worse: The larger the PDB file, the longer it takes the linker to build the executable. So you build gets slower and slower. We’ve experienced this issue when creating obj files with builtin CodeView information from scratch and then feeding them to the MS linker. That’s why I added these lines to Jon’s compiler (about a year ago): https://twitter.com/LubaRaphael/status/1746815998013907008

I'm not sure if it's normal behavior, but I just laughed and felt joy when, on raddebugger a single built in my cli built the entire program without one single error.
