DWARF Browser can be used from the command line as well as with the GUI.


The command line options allow you to view DWARF debug information that is embedded in an executable file, and optionally highlight a symbol at a specified offset.



 Specifies the module to load. This is typically a .exe or a .dll.


 /fileName path-to-executable


 Example: /fileName e:\om\c\test\release\test.exe



 Specifies an offset inside the executable. DWARF Browser will highlight the symbol that occupies this location.


 Typically this offset will be calculated from a crash location.


 For example:


If a DLL is loaded at 0x00400000 and a crash happens at 0x00420192, the offset is calculated by subtracting the DLL load address from the crash address.


That is: 0x00420192 - 0x00400000, which gives 0x00020192.


The offset is 0x00020192.


 The offset must be specified in hexadecimal with a leading 0x.


 /offset value


 Example: /offset 0x00020192
