As part of a small project in school I need to inspect the stack of a
running program in more detail than bt in gdb allows. What I'd like is
to get a dump of the memory containing the stack (preferably in some
nice hex output, and preferably while the program is still being
debugged). I don't need to be able to manipulate the memory but I need
to be able to inspect the layout of the stack and the values of
variables etc. on it.
Does anyone know of a tool that allows you to do these kinds of
things, any help would be appreciated.
I've tried that (and while I'm no ddd expert) and it didn't seem to do
what I want any more than gdb (which is not so surprising since it's
just a front-end). What I want is something like what I can do in
Visual C++ under Windows, there I can have all the registers in one
window and the memory of the stack in another window (in a standard
hex view ie. each line starts with the address followed by the hex-
values for each byte and then ASCII representation) along with a third
window where I see the disassembly. And as I step through I can see
which registers/bytes in memory change.
It does not have to be so interactive but at the very least I need to
be able to dump the values to file between each instruction.
