Does anybody have a Rosetta Stone for the debug symbols in in BSD and Sun
Unix executables for debuggers like gdb and dbx? If so, I sure would like
to have a copy. Also, I have been told that Sun will probably switch over
to the AT&T System V standard format "ELF" someday. I've got the System V
spec, but a quick scan of it turns up no standard form for debugging info.
Is there a standard? If so, what's it called and how do I get one?
[The debug info for ELF is known as DWARF and there is a very active
group working on it. Write email@example.com for details. The debug
syms for dbx seem similar to the COFF ones, the O'Reilly COFF book is a
place to start. -John]
