A GDB toolbox for low-level debugging

Project Description

(void)walker is a toolbox for GDB which provides utilities for debugging software on an instruction level.


  • GDB 7.5 or later built with support for Python extensions.
  • FlowUI 0.2.1 or later.

Currently (void)walker has support for the following architectures:

* X86
* X86-64


(void)walker can be loaded manually from within GDB by running:

python from voidwalker import voidwalker

By adding the previous line to ~/.gdbinit (void)walker will be loaded automatically whenever GDB is launched.

Also register the following hooks in ~/.gdbinit:

define hook-stop
    voidwalker hook-stop


Here follows a list of a few commands, see the README for a complete list.
