OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for dump (opensolaris section 1)

dump(1) 				  User Commands 				  dump(1)

       dump - dump selected parts of an object file

       dump [-aCcfghLorstV [-p]] [-T index [, indexn]] filename...

       dump [-afhorstL [-p] [v]] filename...

       dump [-hsr [-p] [-d number [, numbern]]] filename...

       dump [-hsrt [-p] [-n name]] filename...

       The dump utility dumps selected parts of each of its object file arguments.

       The  dump  utility is best suited for use in shell scripts, whereas the elfdump(1) command
       is recommended for more human-readable output.

       This utility will accept both object files and archives of object files. It processes each
       file argument according to one or more of the following options:

       -a		   Dumps the archive header of each member of an archive.

       -c		   Dumps the string table(s).

       -C		   Dumps decoded C++ symbol table names.

       -f		   Dumps each file header.

       -g		   Dumps the global symbols in the symbol table of an archive.

       -h		   Dumps the section headers.

       -L		   Dumps  dynamic  linking information and static shared library informa-
			   tion, if available.

       -o		   Dumps each program execution header.

       -r		   Dumps relocation information.

       -s		   Dumps section contents in hexadecimal.

       -t		   Dumps symbol table entries.

       -T index 	   Dumps only the indexed symbol table entry defined by index or a  range
       -T index1,index2    of entries defined by index1,index2.

       -V		   Prints version information.

       The  following  modifiers  are used in conjunction with the options listed above to modify
       their capabilities.

       -d number	     Dumps the section number indicated by number or the  range  of  sec-
       -d number1,number2    tions   starting at number1 and ending at number2. This modifier can
			     be used with -h, -s, and -r. When -d is used  with  -h  or  -s,  the
			     argument is treated as the number of a section or range of sections.
			     When -d is used with -r, the argument is treated as  the  number  of
			     the  section  or  range of sections to which the relocation applies.
			     For example, to print out all relocation entries associated with the
			     .text  section, specify the number of the section as the argument to
			     -d. If .text is section number 2 in the file,  dump  -r  -d  2  will
			     print  all  associated  entries.  To print out a specific relocation
			     section, use dump -s -n name for raw data output,	or  dump  -sv  -n
			     name for interpreted output.

       -n name		     Dumps information pertaining only to the named entity. This modifier
			     can be used with -h, -s, -r, and  -t. When -n is used with -h or -s,
			     the  argument  will  be treated as the name of a section. When -n is
			     used with -t or -r, the argument will be treated as the  name  of	a
			     symbol.  For  example,  dump  -t -n .text will dump the symbol table
			     entry associated with the symbol whose name is .text, where dump  -h
			     -n   .text  will  dump  the section header information for the .text

       -p		     Suppresses printing of the headings.

       -v		     Dumps information in symbolic representation  rather  than  numeric.
			     This modifier can be used with

			     -a    (date, user id, group id)

			     -f    (class, data, type, machine, version, flags)

			     -h    (type, flags)

			     -L    (value)

			     -o    (type, flags)

			     -r    (name, type)

			     -s    (interpret section contents wherever possible)

			     -t    (type, bind)

			     When  -v is used with -s, all sections that can be interpreted, such
			     as the string table or symbol table, will be interpreted. For  exam-
			     ple, dump -sv -n .symtab filename... will produce the same formatted
			     output as dump -tv filename..., but dump -s -n  .symtab  filename...
			     will  print  raw  data in hexadecimal. Without additional modifiers,
			     dump -sv filename... will dump all sections in the files, interpret-
			     ing  all  those  that  it can and dumping the rest (such as .text or
			     .data) as raw data.

       The dump utility attempts to format the information it dumps in a meaningful way, printing
       certain	information in character, hexadecimal, octal, or decimal representation as appro-
