func New

func New(abbrev, aranges, frame, info, line, pubnames, ranges, str []byte) (*Data, error)

New returns a new Data object initialized from the given parameters. Rather than calling this function directly, clients should typically use the DWARF method of the File type of the appropriate package debug/elf, debug/macho, or debug/pe.

The []byte arguments are the data from the corresponding debug section in the object file; for example, for an ELF object, abbrev is the contents of the ".debug_abbrev" section.

func (*Data) AddTypes

func (d *Data) AddTypes(name string, types []byte) error

AddTypes will add one .debug_types section to the DWARF data. A typical object with DWARF version 4 debug info will have multiple .debug_types sections. The name is used for error reporting only, and serves to distinguish one .debug_types section from another.

func (d *Data) EntryLocation(e *Entry) (uint64, error)

EntryLocation returns the address of the object referred to by the given Entry.

func (*Data) PCToLine

func (d *Data) PCToLine(pc uint64) (file string, line uint64, err error)

PCToLine returns the file and line number corresponding to the PC value. It returns an error if a correspondence cannot be found.

func (*Data) PCToSPOffset

func (d *Data) PCToSPOffset(pc uint64) (offset int64, err error)

PCToSPOffset returns the offset, at the specified PC, to add to the SP to reach the virtual frame pointer, which corresponds to the address of the zeroth argument of the function, the word on the stack immediately above the return PC.

func (*Data) Reader

func (d *Data) Reader() *Reader

Reader returns a new Reader for Data. The reader is positioned at byte offset 0 in the DWARF “info” section.

func (*Data) Type

func (d *Data) Type(off Offset) (Type, error)

Type reads the type at off in the DWARF “info” section.

	Tag      Tag    // tag (kind of Entry)
	Children bool   // whether Entry is followed by children
	Field    []Field

An entry is a sequence of attribute/value pairs.

func (*Entry) Val

func (e *Entry) Val(a Attr) interface{}

Val returns the value associated with attribute Attr in Entry, or nil if there is no such attribute.

A common idiom is to merge the check for nil return with the check that the value has the expected dynamic type, as in:

v, ok := e.Val(AttrSibling).(int64);

type EnumType

	// contains filtered or unexported fields

A Reader allows reading Entry structures from a DWARF “info” section. The Entry structures are arranged in a tree. The Reader's Next function return successive entries from a pre-order traversal of the tree. If an entry has children, its Children field will be true, and the children follow, terminated by an Entry with Tag 0.

AddressSize returns the size in bytes of addresses in the current compilation unit.

func (*Reader) Next

func (r *Reader) Next() (*Entry, error)

Seek positions the Reader at offset off in the encoded entry stream. Offset 0 can be used to denote the first entry.

func (*Reader) SkipChildren

func (r *Reader) SkipChildren()

SkipChildren skips over the child entries associated with the last Entry returned by Next. If that Entry did not have children or Next has not been called, SkipChildren is a no-op.

A SliceType represents a Go slice type. It looks like a StructType, describing the runtime-internal structure, with extra fields.

func (*SliceType) String

func (t *SliceType) String() string

type StringType

type StringType struct {

A StringType represents a Go string type. It looks like a StructType, describing the runtime-internal structure, but we wrap it for neatness.

func (t *StringType) String() string

type StructField

type StructField struct {
	Name       string
	Type       Type
	ByteOffset int64
