Name
       odump - dumps selected parts of an object file

Syntax
       odump [ options ] file...

Description
       The command dumps selected parts of each object file.  This command works for object files and archives of object files.

Options
       The following options are available with the command:

       -a	  Dumps the archive header for each member of the specified archive file.

       -f	  Dumps each file header.

       -g	  Dumps the global symbols from the symbol table of a RISC archive.

       -o	  Dumps each optional header.

       -h	  Dumps section headers.

       -i	  Dumps the symbolic information header.

       -s	  Dumps section contents.

       -r	  Dumps relocation information.

       -l	  Dumps line number information.

       -t	  Dumps symbol table entries.

       -zname	  Dumps line number entries for the specified function name.

       -c	  Dumps the string table.

       -L	  Interpret and print the contents of the .lib sections.

       -F	  Dumps the file descriptor table.

       -P	  Dumps the procedure descriptor table.

       -R	  Dumps the relative file index table.

       The command accepts these modifiers with the options:

       -dnumber   Dumps  the  section  number or a range of sections starting at number and ending either at the last section number or the number
		  you specify with +d.

       +dnumber   Dumps sections in the range beginning with the first section or beginning with the section you specify with -d.

       -nname	  Dumps information only about the specified name.  This modifier works with -h, -s, -r, -l, and -t.

       -p	  Does not print headers

       -tindex	  Dumps only the indexed symbol table entry.  You can also specify a range of symbol table entries by using the modifier  -t  with
		  the +t option.

       +tindex	  Dumps  the symbol table entries in the specified range.  The range begins at the first symbol table entry or at the entry speci-
		  fied by -t.  The range ends with the specified indexed entry.

       -u	  Underlines the name of the file for emphasis.

       -v	  Dumps information symbolically rather than numerically (for example, Static rather than 0X02 ).  You can use	-v  with  all  the
		  options except -s.

       -zname,number
		  Dumps the specified line number entry or a range of line numbers.  The range starts at the number for the named function.

       +znumber   Dumps line numbers for a specified range.  The range starts at either the name or number specified by -z The range ends with the
		  number specified by +z.

       Also, an option and its modifier can be separated by using blanks.  The name can be separated from the number that modifies -z by replacing
       the comma with a blank.

       The command tries to format information in a helpful way, printing information in character, hexadecimal, octal, or decimal as appropriate.

NAME
dump - dump selected parts of an object file SYNOPSIS
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... DESCRIPTION
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. OPTIONS
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 information, 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 of entries defined by index1,index2. -T 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 sections starting at number1 and ending at number2. -d number1,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 section. -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 example, dump -sv -n .symtab filename... will produce the same formatted output as dump -tv file- name..., 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, interpreting 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 appropriate. ATTRIBUTES
