This script uses ShowGlobals.exe to compare two PDBs to see what interesting
globals are present in one but not the other. You can either pass in a .pdb file
or you can pass in a .txt file that contains the results of calling ShowGlobals.
This helps when investigating size regressions. Often code-size regressions are
associated with global variable changes, and those global variables can be
easier to track and investigate than the code.
Typical output from ShowGlobals.exe is lines like these:
#Dups DupSize Size Section Symbol name PDB name
0 0 122784 2 kBrotliDictionary chrome.dll.pdb
1 1824 0 0 LcidToLocaleNameTable chrome.dll.pdb

lines = subprocess.check_output(command).splitlines()
elif extension in ['.txt']:
lines = open(pdb_name).readlines()
