I have been trying to make dbx on AIX 4.3 work for me, but I havent been
able to make it do stuff. Hoping someone here can give me some hints.
I'm trying to debug a user program that has dumped core. The binary was
not compiled with a -g. Things that I can do on other platforms dont
seem to work here. I'm trying something like this
print (struct foo *)0x20f6abcd
dbx complains that there is a syntax error !!
Is there a way to forcefully load an object file so that dbx picks up
structure definitions ? Or is there a way to set the current address
(the dot variable) so that I can write macros and use source to dump out
All this would not have been a problem had adb worked alright. adb
doesnt seem to understand the newer core format.
I still can do stuff by compiling with -qlist and calculating
stackpointer offsets by hand but this is very painful if you have to do
it multiple times.
I would appreciate any help/
