NAME

ctfconvert – convert debug data to CTF data

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS


ctfconvert [-gis] -l label -L labelenv [-o outfile] object_file

DESCRIPTION

The ctfconvert utility converts debug information from a binary file to CTF data and replaces the debug section of that file with a CTF section called SUNW_ctf. This new section is added to the input file, unless the -o option is present. You can also opt to keep the original debugging section with the -g option.

The following options are available:
-l label
  Sets the label as label.
-L labelenv
  Instructs ctfconvert to read the label from the environment variable labelenv.
-g
  Don't delete the original debugging section.
-i
  Ignore object files built from other languages than C.
-s
  Use the .dynsym ELF section instead of the .symtab ELF section.
-o outfile
  Write the output to file in outfile.

EXIT STATUS

The utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
