Binary Utility Program Examples


The following command uses output redirection to generate a file

pic32-objdump -dS --stop-address=0x9d000500 calc.elf > calc1.da.txt

It produces the following information (abridged)

9d000018 <main>:
#include <p32xxxx.h>

int main()
9d000018:    27bdffe8     addiu    sp,sp,-24
9d00001c:    afbe0010     sw    s8,16(sp)
9d000020:    03a0f021     move    s8,sp
    int na, nb, nc;

    na = 14;
9d000024:    2402000e     li    v0,14
9d000028:    afc20000     sw    v0,0(s8)
    nb = na + 21;
9d00002c:    8fc20000     lw    v0,0(s8)
9d000030:    24420015     addiu    v0,v0,21
9d000034:    afc20004     sw    v0,4(s8)
    nc = na & 0x3c;
9d000038:    8fc20000     lw    v0,0(s8)
9d00003c:    3042003c     andi    v0,v0,0x3c

    return 0;
