I'm trying to put together a fast, internal-circular-buffer-type tracing
package. I want to get able to extract the traces from either a running
program or a core file, but our binaries are normally sent out stripped.
I thought if I put a word or two with a particular pattern at the
of the trace buffer, I could look for that with gdb and use gdb to
the rest of the buffer.
Do you know of any way to say 'search for pattern in <BSS,heap> space'
If not, can you think of any other way to find a buffer in a stripped
P.S. - Please respond to my e-mail addr as well as the list...
