dbx is a tool for source-level debugging and execution of programs. It allows you to determine the exact statement that caused a core dump, or to monitor the. A Short User Manual for dbx. “dbx” is the name of the debugger that is available for use on many Unix systems. This document is intended to list the most. There is a fancier X-windows interface for AIX, invoked with the command xde, The dbx debugger is able to track the execution of your program line-by-line in the first at the file containing the main program and is waiting for instructions.

Redirects output and standard error to File.

If a signal is specified, the program continues as if it received that signal. The dbx command monitors the occurrence of a transaction and displays the cause of the transaction failure through the following series of messages. See the pluginload subcommand and pluginunload subcommand.

For more information, see disable subcommanddelete subcommandstatus subcommand. Sets an instruction-level trace for a thread.

The traces and stops to be enabled can be specified through the Number parameters, or all traces and stops can be enabled by using the all flag. Prints a byte as a character.

Use the status subcommand to view these numbers. Signal names are not case-sensitive. If no signal is specified, the program continues as if no stop occurred. The thread subcommand displays and controls user threads. manal

dbx Command

Item Description all Removes all the dbx subcommands associated with the specified event. Also, see the which subcommand. If the ThreadNumber parameter is not given, displays a long format listing of all user threads. The in Procedure flag is used, and the Procedure is called. This value can dx fif, oth, rr, for fifo, other, or round-robin scheduling policies. Enables or disables multiprocess debugging.


dbx — Use the debugger

Reads dbx subcommands from a file. The tstep subcommand runs the specified number of source lines from the current source line for the running thread. The janual is an example where the x variable is an maual with value If the cancelation is pending and the cancelation state and mode is enabled and deferred respectively, then it is represented by EDif cancelation state and mode is enabled and asynchronous, then it is represented by EAand if mode is not enabled, then it is represented by D.

The default value is See the list subcommand. To do this, it is useful to insert a sleep 30 call into the program to be debugged.

The return code is not printed. Displays information about once blocks. Print tracing information aux subcommand for dbx: Specifies the load module to be monitored. If the ThreadNumber parameter is not given, releases and displays all previously held user threads. This value determines the contention scope of the thread, and defines the set of threads with which manuaal must contend for processing resources.

The order in which the symbols print is not significant. This will give you enough time to issue the ps -Aef shell command to find the process ID of the program. The move subcommand changes the next line to be displayed to the line specified manial the SourceLine parameter.

The corefile subcommand displays information from the header of manua, core file, including the executable name, core file format version information, flags indicating which data is available, the signal that caused the crash, and the execution mode of the process that dumped core. A variable is expanded to the corresponding expression within other commands. The Number parameter specifies the number of times the tnexti subcommand runs.


Change the current function goto subcommand for dbx: If the -g flag is not used or if symbol references are removed from the xcoff file with the strip command, the symbolic capabilities of the dbx command are limited.

They make it easier for the user to manua, source file locations in the case that entire directory structures of source files are relocated after compilation. Specifies the machine instruction address. To perform source-level debugging, you ai to compile your executable with symbolic information. Turns off strict type checking between the two sides of an assign statement. See the corefile subcommand. If static and dynamic searches do not yield a result, an arbitrary aux is chosen and the system prints the message using Module.

This alternate object file must be the unstripped copy of the original object file; otherwise, it will be ignored. Run a specified source line gotoi subcommand for dbx: The list subcommand displays a specified number of lines of the source file.

The enable subcommand enables traces and stops associated with debug events. Runs a thread for one source line. See the detach subcommand for the amnual command, the goto subcommand for the dbx command, the next subcommand for the dbx command, manua skip subcommand for the dbx command, the step subcommand for the dbx command. The number of thread-level breakpoints specified by the Number parameter is skipped for the running thread. You can use the thdata subcommand in the following ways.

The at SourceLine flag is used, and the SourceLine line number is reached.
