178 \fIobjfile\fR...
181\&\fBobjdump\fR displays information about one or more object files.
182The options control what particular information to display. This
183information is mostly useful to programmers who are working on the
184compilation tools, as opposed to programmers who just want their
185program to compile and work.
187\&\fIobjfile\fR... are the object files to be examined. When you
188specify archives, \fBobjdump\fR shows information on each of the member
189object files.
191.IX Header "OPTIONS"
192The long and short forms of options, shown here as alternatives, are
193equivalent. At least one option from the list
194\&\fB\-a,\-d,\-D,\-e,\-f,\-g,\-G,\-h,\-H,\-p,\-P,\-r,\-R,\-s,\-S,\-t,\-T,\-V,\-x\fR must be given.

196.IX Item "-a"
197.PD 0
198.IP "\fB\-\-archive\-header\fR" 4
199.IX Item "--archive-header"
201If any of the \fIobjfile\fR files are archives, display the archive
202header information (in a format similar to \fBls \-l\fR). Besides the
203information you could list with \fBar tv\fR, \fBobjdump \-a\fR shows
204the object file format of each archive member.
205.IP "\fB\-\-adjust\-vma=\fR\fIoffset\fR" 4
206.IX Item "--adjust-vma=offset"
207When dumping information, first add \fIoffset\fR to all the section
208addresses. This is useful if the section addresses do not correspond to
209the symbol table, which can happen when putting sections at particular
210addresses when using a format which can not represent section addresses,
211such as a.out.

214.PD 0
215.IP "\fB\-\-target=\fR\fIbfdname\fR" 4
216.IX Item "--target=bfdname"
218Specify that the object-code format for the object files is
219\&\fIbfdname\fR. This option may not be necessary; \fIobjdump\fR can
220automatically recognize many formats.
222For example,
224.Vb 1
225\& objdump \-b oasys \-m vax \-h fu.o
228displays summary information from the section headers (\fB\-h\fR) of
229\&\fIfu.o\fR, which is explicitly identified (\fB\-m\fR) as a \s-1VAX\s0 object
230file in the format produced by Oasys compilers. You can list the
231formats available with the \fB\-i\fR option.

235.IP "\fB\-\-demangle[=\fR\fIstyle\fR\fB]\fR" 4
236.IX Item "--demangle[=style]"
238Decode (\fIdemangle\fR) low-level symbol names into user-level names.
239Besides removing any initial underscore prepended by the system, this
240makes \*(C+ function names readable. Different compilers have different
241mangling styles. The optional demangling style argument can be used to
242choose an appropriate demangling style for your compiler.

244.IX Item "-g"
245.PD 0
246.IP "\fB\-\-debugging\fR" 4
247.IX Item "--debugging"
249Display debugging information. This attempts to parse \s-1STABS\s0 and \s-1IEEE\s0
250debugging format information stored in the file and print it out using
251a C like syntax. If neither of these formats are found this option
252falls back on the \fB\-W\fR option to print any \s-1DWARF\s0 information in
253the file.

256.PD 0
257.IP "\fB\-\-debugging\-tags\fR" 4

264.PD 0
265.IP "\fB\-\-disassemble\fR" 4
266.IX Item "--disassemble"
268Display the assembler mnemonics for the machine instructions from
269\&\fIobjfile\fR. This option only disassembles those sections which are
270expected to contain instructions.
271.IP "\fB\-D\fR" 4
272.IX Item "-D"
273.PD 0
274.IP "\fB\-\-disassemble\-all\fR" 4
275.IX Item "--disassemble-all"
277Like \fB\-d\fR, but disassemble the contents of all sections, not just
278those expected to contain instructions.
280If the target is an \s-1ARM\s0 architecture this switch also has the effect
281of forcing the disassembler to decode pieces of data found in code
282sections as if they were instructions.
283.IP "\fB\-\-prefix\-addresses\fR" 4
284.IX Item "--prefix-addresses"
285When disassembling, print the complete address on each line. This is
286the older disassembly format.

292.IP "\fB\-\-endian={big|little}\fR" 4
293.IX Item "--endian={big|little}"
295Specify the endianness of the object files. This only affects
296disassembly. This can be useful when disassembling a file format which
297does not describe endianness information, such as S\-records.
298.IP "\fB\-f\fR" 4
299.IX Item "-f"
300.PD 0
301.IP "\fB\-\-file\-headers\fR" 4
302.IX Item "--file-headers"
304Display summary information from the overall header of
305each of the \fIobjfile\fR files.
306.IP "\fB\-F\fR" 4
307.IX Item "-F"
308.PD 0
309.IP "\fB\-\-file\-offsets\fR" 4
310.IX Item "--file-offsets"
312When disassembling sections, whenever a symbol is displayed, also
313display the file offset of the region of data that is about to be
314dumped. If zeroes are being skipped, then when disassembly resumes,
315tell the user how many zeroes were skipped and the file offset of the
316location from where the disassembly resumes. When dumping sections,
317display the file offset of the location from where the dump starts.
318.IP "\fB\-\-file\-start\-context\fR" 4
319.IX Item "--file-start-context"
320Specify that when displaying interlisted source code/disassembly
321(assumes \fB\-S\fR) from a file that has not yet been displayed, extend the
322context to the start of the file.
323.IP "\fB\-h\fR" 4
324.IX Item "-h"
325.PD 0
326.IP "\fB\-\-section\-headers\fR" 4
327.IX Item "--section-headers"
328.IP "\fB\-\-headers\fR" 4
329.IX Item "--headers"
331Display summary information from the section headers of the
332object file.
334File segments may be relocated to nonstandard addresses, for example by
335using the \fB\-Ttext\fR, \fB\-Tdata\fR, or \fB\-Tbss\fR options to
336\&\fBld\fR. However, some object file formats, such as a.out, do not
337store the starting address of the file segments. In those situations,
338although \fBld\fR relocates the sections correctly, using \fBobjdump
339\&\-h\fR to list the file section headers cannot show the correct addresses.
340Instead, it shows the usual addresses, which are implicit for the

343.IX Item "-H"
344.PD 0
345.IP "\fB\-\-help\fR" 4

368.IX Item "--line-numbers"
370Label the display (using debugging information) with the filename and
371source line numbers corresponding to the object code or relocs shown.
372Only useful with \fB\-d\fR, \fB\-D\fR, or \fB\-r\fR.
373.IP "\fB\-m\fR \fImachine\fR" 4
374.IX Item "-m machine"
375.PD 0
376.IP "\fB\-\-architecture=\fR\fImachine\fR" 4
377.IX Item "--architecture=machine"
379Specify the architecture to use when disassembling object files. This
380can be useful when disassembling object files which do not describe
381architecture information, such as S\-records. You can list the available
382architectures with the \fB\-i\fR option.
384If the target is an \s-1ARM\s0 architecture then this switch has an
385additional effect. It restricts the disassembly to only those
386instructions supported by the architecture specified by \fImachine\fR.
387If it is necessary to use this switch because the input file does not
388contain any architecture information, but it is also desired to
389disassemble all the instructions use \fB\-marm\fR.
390.IP "\fB\-M\fR \fIoptions\fR" 4
391.IX Item "-M options"
392.PD 0
393.IP "\fB\-\-disassembler\-options=\fR\fIoptions\fR" 4
394.IX Item "--disassembler-options=options"
396Pass target specific information to the disassembler. Only supported on
397some targets. If it is necessary to specify more than one
398disassembler option then multiple \fB\-M\fR options can be used or
399can be placed together into a comma separated list.
401If the target is an \s-1ARM\s0 architecture then this switch can be used to
402select which register name set is used during disassembler. Specifying
403\&\fB\-M reg-names-std\fR (the default) will select the register names as
404used in \s-1ARM\s0's instruction set documentation, but with register 13 called
405\&'sp', register 14 called 'lr' and register 15 called 'pc'. Specifying
406\&\fB\-M reg-names-apcs\fR will select the name set used by the \s-1ARM\s0
407Procedure Call Standard, whilst specifying \fB\-M reg-names-raw\fR will
408just use \fBr\fR followed by the register number.
410There are also two variants on the \s-1APCS\s0 register naming scheme enabled
411by \fB\-M reg-names-atpcs\fR and \fB\-M reg-names-special-atpcs\fR which
412use the ARM/Thumb Procedure Call Standard naming conventions. (Either
413with the normal register names or the special register names).
415This option can also be used for \s-1ARM\s0 architectures to force the
416disassembler to interpret all instructions as Thumb instructions by
417using the switch \fB\-\-disassembler\-options=force\-thumb\fR. This can be
418useful when attempting to disassemble thumb code produced by other
421For the x86, some of the options duplicate functions of the \fB\-m\fR
422switch, but allow finer grained control. Multiple selections from the
423following may be specified as a comma separated string.
424\&\fBx86\-64\fR, \fBi386\fR and \fBi8086\fR select disassembly for
425the given architecture. \fBintel\fR and \fBatt\fR select between
426intel syntax mode and \s-1AT&T\s0 syntax mode.
427\&\fBintel-mnemonic\fR and \fBatt-mnemonic\fR select between
428intel mnemonic mode and \s-1AT&T\s0 mnemonic mode. \fBintel-mnemonic\fR
429implies \fBintel\fR and \fBatt-mnemonic\fR implies \fBatt\fR.
430\&\fBaddr64\fR, \fBaddr32\fR,
431\&\fBaddr16\fR, \fBdata32\fR and \fBdata16\fR specify the default
432address size and operand size. These four options will be overridden if
433\&\fBx86\-64\fR, \fBi386\fR or \fBi8086\fR appear later in the
434option string. Lastly, \fBsuffix\fR, when in \s-1AT&T\s0 mode,
435instructs the disassembler to print a mnemonic suffix even when the
436suffix could be inferred by the operands.
438For PowerPC, \fBbooke\fR controls the disassembly of BookE
439instructions. \fB32\fR and \fB64\fR select PowerPC and
440PowerPC64 disassembly, respectively. \fBe300\fR selects
441disassembly for the e300 family. \fB440\fR selects disassembly for
442the PowerPC 440. \fBppcps\fR selects disassembly for the paired
443single instructions of the \s-1PPC750CL\s0.
445For \s-1MIPS\s0, this option controls the printing of instruction mnemonic
446names and register names in disassembled instructions. Multiple
447selections from the following may be specified as a comma separated
448string, and invalid options are ignored:

504be decoded as \s-1VAX\s0 instructions, which would probably lead the rest
505of the function being wrongly disassembled.

646.IX Item "--syms"
648Print the symbol table entries of the file.
649This is similar to the information provided by the \fBnm\fR program,
650although the display format is different. The format of the output
651depends upon the format of the file being dumped, but there are two main
652types. One looks like this:
654.Vb 2
655\& [ 4](sec 3)(fl 0x00)(ty 0)(scl 3) (nx 1) 0x00000000 .bss
656\& [ 6](sec 1)(fl 0x00)(ty 0)(scl 2) (nx 0) 0x00000000 fred
659where the number inside the square brackets is the number of the entry
660in the symbol table, the \fIsec\fR number is the section number, the
661\&\fIfl\fR value are the symbol's flag bits, the \fIty\fR number is the
662symbol's type, the \fIscl\fR number is the symbol's storage class and
663the \fInx\fR value is the number of auxilary entries associated with
664the symbol. The last two fields are the symbol's value and its name.
666The other common output format, usually seen with \s-1ELF\s0 based files,
667looks like this:
669.Vb 2
670\& 00000000 l d .bss 00000000 .bss
671\& 00000000 g .text 00000000 fred
674Here the first number is the symbol's value (sometimes refered to as
675its address). The next field is actually a set of characters and
676spaces indicating the flag bits that are set on the symbol. These
677characters are described below. Next is the section with which the
678symbol is associated or \fI*ABS*\fR if the section is absolute (ie
679not connected with any section), or \fI*UND*\fR if the section is
680referenced in the file being dumped, but not defined there.
682After the section name comes another field, a number, which for common
683symbols is the alignment and for other symbol is the size. Finally
684the symbol's name is displayed.
686The flag characters are divided into 7 groups as follows:
687.RS 4 n .IP """l""" 4
689.el .IP "\f(CWl\fR" 4
690.IX Item "l"

697.IX Item "u" n .IP """!""" 4
699.el .IP "\f(CW!\fR" 4
700.IX Item "!"
702The symbol is a local (l), global (g), unique global (u), neither
703global nor local (a space) or both global and local (!). A
704symbol can be neither local or global for a variety of reasons, e.g.,
705because it is used for debugging, but it is probably an indication of
706a bug if it is ever both local and global. Unique global symbols are
707a \s-1GNU\s0 extension to the standard set of \s-1ELF\s0 symbol bindings. For such
708a symbol the dynamic linker will make sure that in the entire process
709there is just one symbol with this name and type in use. n .IP """w""" 4
711.el .IP "\f(CWw\fR" 4
712.IX Item "w"
713The symbol is weak (w) or strong (a space). n .IP """C""" 4
