     dis - object code disassembler

     dis [-onqCLV] [-d sec] [-D sec] [-F function]
         [-l string] [-t sec] file...

     The dis command produces an  assembly  language  listing  of
     file,  which  can  be an object file or an archive of object
     files. The listing includes assembly statements and an octal
     or  hexadecimal  representation  of the binary that produced
     those statements.

     Options are interpreted  by  the  disassembler  and  can  be
     specified in any order.

     The following options are supported:

     -C             Displays demangled C++ symbol  names  in  the

     -d sec         Disassembles  the  named  section  as   data,
                    printing  the  offset  of  the  data from the
                    beginning of the section.

     -D sec         Disassembles  the  named  section  as   data,
                    printing the actual address of the data.

     -F function    Disassembles only the named function in  each
                    object  file  specified  on the command line.
                    The -F option can be specified multiple times
                    on the command line.

     -l string      Disassembles the archive  file  specified  by
                    string. For example, one would issue the com-
                    mand dis -l x -l z to disassemble libx.a  and
                    libz.a, which are assumed to be in LIBDIR.

                    This option is obsolete and might be  removed
                    in a future release of Solaris.

     -L             Invokes a lookup of C-language source  labels
                    in the symbol table for subsequent writing to
                    standard output.

                    This option is obsolete and might be  removed
                    in a future release of Solaris.

     -n             Displays all addresses numerically. Addresses
                    are   displayed   using   symbolic  names  by

     -o             Prints numbers in octal. The default is hexa-

     -q             Quiet mode.  Does not print  any  headers  or
                    function entry labels.

     -t sec         Disassembles the named section as text.

     -V             Prints, on standard error, the version number
                    of the disassembler being executed.

                    This option is obsolete and might be  removed
                    in a future release of Solaris.

     If the -d, -D, or -t options are specified, only those named
     sections  from each user-supplied file is disassembled. Oth-
     erwise, all sections containing text is disassembled.

     On output, a number enclosed in brackets at the beginning of
     a line, such as [5], indicates that the break-pointable line
     number starts with the  following  instruction.  These  line
     numbers  is printed only if the file was compiled with addi-
     tional debugging information, for example, the -g option  of
     cc(1B).  An  expression such as <40> in the operand field or
     in the symbolic disassembly, following a relative  displace-
     ment  for  control  transfer  instructions,  is the computed
     address within the section to which control is  transferred.
     A  function name appears in the first column, followed by ()
     if the object file contains a symbol table.

     The following operand is supported:

     file    A path name of an object file  or  an  archive  (see
             ar(1)) of object files.

     See environ(5) for descriptions of the following environment
     variables  that  affect  the  execution  of  dis:  LC_CTYPE,

     LIBDIR    If this environment variable contains a value, use
               this as the path to search for the library. If the
               variable contains a null value, or is not set,  it
               defaults   to  searching  for  the  library  under

     The following exit values are returned:

     0     Successful completion.

     >0    An error occurred.

     /usr/lib    default LIBDIR

     See attributes(5) for descriptions of the  following  attri-

    |       ATTRIBUTE TYPE        |       ATTRIBUTE VALUE       |
    | Availability                | SUNWbtool                   |
    | Interface Stability         | See below.                  |

     The human readable output  is  Unstable.  The  command  line
     options are Evolving.

     ar(1),  as(1),  cc(1B),  ld(1),   a.out(4),   attributes(5),

     The self-explanatory diagnostics indicate errors in the com-
     mand line or problems encountered with the specified files.
