Hello there.

I need to port some debugger type software to Sun OS 5.3, which uses
the ELF format for executables.

I can't figure out how to get the function-parameter information for
functions in shared libraries. I want to print the names and values
of parameters in stack-traces. The info doesn't seem to be in the shared
library itself. That's a drag. Apparently you have to keep the dot-o files
laying around. But I still need to know how to associate a function in a shared
library with the dot-o file. I've tried decyphering the shared library file,
but to no avail. I really need a Rosetta Stone.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
