Re: .exe.stackdump and core dump files questions

   * /Subject/: .exe.stackdump and core dump files questions


I would ask if there is an utility that transforme an .exe.stackdump
(bootstrap-emacs.exe.stackdump, for example) file in human-readable


The following advice worked for me:

addr2line expects addresses of functions.  It also expects its input
executables to be compiled with debugging support enabled.

Try the following:

awk '/^[0-9]/{print $2}' testprog.exe.stackdump | addr2line -f -e testprog.exe

If testprog.exe was compiled with the "-g" gcc flag, this should work and
give you the names of the functions *in testprog.exe*.  Functions that
came from DLLs will need a separate invocation of addr2line (I don't think
you can specify several -e targets in one command), and will require DLLs
with debugging information, AFAIK.
