       adb - general-purpose debugger

       adb [-kw] [-I dir] [-P prompt] [-V mode] [object [core]]

       The  adb  utility  is  an interactive, general-purpose debugger. It can be used to examine
       files and provides a controlled environment for the execution of programs.

       The adb utility is now implemented as a link to the mdb(1) utility. mdb(1) is a	low-level
       debugging utility that can be used to examine user processes as well as the live operating
       system or operating system crash dumps. The new mdb(1) utility provides complete backwards
       compatibility with the existing syntax and features of adb, including support for process-
       ing adb macro files. The Solaris Modular Debugger Guide and mdb(1) man page describes  the
       features  of  mdb,  including  its  adb compatibility mode. This mode will be activated by
       default when the adb link is executed.
