jtool output small question

Postby NJJN » Thu Jul 14, 2016 6:55 am


Was trying to understand the output shown by jtool & want to know what is the meaning of

1. b d r s t
2. Capital T C D

shown when we use -S -v on an app.

alias jt='ARCH=armv7 jtool' <--- alias in my zshrc

Like for example using jtool on ls

# jt -S -v ls
Code: Select all

        Symbol table is at offset 0x10a08 (68104), 189 entries <---- we got this 189 (49 + 55 + 85 = 189) entries.
        String table is at offset 0x11638 (71224), 2056 bytes 

           49 local symbols at index     0       <--- (b=17+d=8+r=5+s=1+t=18 = 49) local symbols starts with zero i.e. 0 to 48
           55 external symbols at index  49      <--- (T=25+C=29+D=1 = 55) external from 49
           85 undefined symbols at index 104      <--- (U) undefined at 104 to 189 <-- total entries shown below
           No TOC                  So b d r s t are local symbols (49)
           No modtab                   capital T C D are external symbols (55)
          213 Indirect symbols at offset 0x112e4       U there are undefined symbols (85)

189 entries are below using -S -v option for more details.

Code: Select all

Re: jtool output small question

I got the answer it's symbol type. Searching nm command details pages on the web.

The symbol type.
At least the following types are used; others are, as well, depending on the object file format.
If lowercase, the symbol is usually local;
If uppercase, the symbol is global (external).
There are however a few lowercase symbols that are shown for special global symbols (u, v and w).
Code: Select all
b = The symbol is in the uninitialized data section
d = The symbol is in the initialized data section
r = The symbol is in a read only data section.
s = The symbol is in an uninitialized data section for small objects.
t = The symbol is in the text (code) section

T = The symbol is in the text (code) section (external)
C = Common symbols are uninitialized data.
D = The symbol is in the initialized data section (external)

U = Undefined that was straight forward.

Amazing tool *JTOOL* rocks!
