Unlike gdb’s command set, which is rather free-form, we tried to make the lldb command syntax fairly structured.

Custom LLDB Commands in Practice |

The lldb commands are more verbose but also more precise and allow for intelligent auto completion. This means you can use Xcode to attach to SpringBoard and use all the shortcuts and commands you are accustomed to. Use ” –script ” if you want to implement your breakpoint command using the Python script instead.

The first instance you’ll note of this is the breakpoint command.

After you launch or attach to a commnads, your process might stop somewhere:. Comamnds 8 bytes ahead of the current program counter instruction pointer. Type ‘DONE’ to end. Attach to a remote GDB protocol server running on the local system, port In addition, it looks for any. We will start with some details on lldb command structure and syntax to help orient you. You can tell whether the expression was resolved or not by checking the locations field in “breakpoint list”, and we report the breakpoint as “pending” when you set it so you can tell you’ve commadns a typo more easily, if that was indeed the reason no locations were found: The array brackets can be used on pointers to treat pointers as arrays:.

The simple solution would be to use the name to gather the breakpoints you want to affect this way into a group. You can actually just get the summary of where this code is with the –summary option instead:. The “help” output for a command will tell you if it is “raw” or not, so you know what to expect.


Remap source file pathnames for the debug session. Disassemble the current function for the current frame. You can use the help command to get an comnands of which commands are available or commadns obtain details about specific commands.

Set environment variables for process before launching. A lot of people seem to think normal debugging and reverse engineering applications use a different set of debugging skills. Also by popular demand, it is aliased to b. To set a breakpoint Objective-C selectors named alignLeftEdges: Ldb a generalized expression in the current frame.

One convenient way to do that would be to make all the breakpoints, then configure the options with: This one lldbb a bit messy at present. You can tell whether the expression was resolved or not by checking the locations field in “breakpoint list”, and we report the breakpoint as “pending” when you set it so you can tell you’ve made a typo more easily, if that was indeed the reason no locations were found:.

Look up information for a raw address in the executable or any shared libraries. You commadns find some amusing things there.

Custom LLDB Commands in Practice

All the functionality of the debugger is available as classes in the Python interpreter, so the more complex commands that in gdb you would introduce with the “define” command can be done by writing Python functions using the lldb-Python library, then loading the scripts into your running session and accessing them with the “script” command.

Set a breakpoint at all functions named main. Do a source-level single step over in the currently selected thread.

Select a different stack frame by index for the current thread. If your source files are no longer located in the same location as when the program was built—maybe the program was built on a different computer—you need to tell the debugger how to find commahds sources at the local file path instead of the build system file path.

LLDB Quick Start Guide

Type ‘DONE’ to end. This one finds debug symbols: This command will run the thread in the current frame till it reaches line in this frame or stops if it leaves the current frame. The commands that currently work while running include interrupting the process to halt execution ” process interrupt “getting the process status ” process status “breakpoint setting and clearing ” breakpoint [set clear enable disable list] Note the line that says ” 1 of 3 threads stopped with reasons: Show the contents of the global variable baz.


Your aliases are also documented in the help command so you can remind yourself of what you’ve set up. At present you can only operate on one thread at a time, but the design will ultimately support saying “step over the function in Thread 1, and step into the function in Thread 2, and continue Thread 3” etc. Just like gdb, the lldb command interpreter does a shortest unique string match on command names, so the following two commands will both execute the same command: For instance, break by selector would set a breakpoint on all the methods that implement that selector in the classes in your program.

LLDB to GDB Command Map

Show mixed source and disassembly for the current function for the current frame. LLDB evaluates a variable declaration expression as you would write it in C: This will not only dump the class methods and instance methods, but also the properties implemented by this class and the address in memory of where this code is loaded in memory. As I said above, “expression” is one of the “raw” commands. Note that we use ckmmands to evaluate an expression and insert the scalar result in LLDB. Backtrace the first five frames of the current thread.

For example, instead of breakpoint setbr se can be used. Thank you for providing feedback!
