A GDB toolbox for low-level debugging
(void)walker is a toolbox for GDB which provides utilities for debugging software on an instruction level.
Currently (void)walker has support for the following architectures:
* X86 * X86-64 * MIPS
(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 end
Here follows a list of a few commands, see the README for a complete list.
Dumping the context of the current stack frame:
Dumping data by specifying address and length:
voidwalker dump data <address> <length>
Dumping disassembly by specifying address and the number of instructions:
voidwalker dump instructions <address> <length>
