dwarf is too much for c++

One side effect about changing the kernel from c to c++ is that: in the kernel file, the number of dwarf information will increase dramatically from 1,000 to 1,550,000. This let the peter-dwarf parser work slowing to build a tree to display it (But the dwarf parsing still fast). I added the parameter in PeterDwarfPanel…

bug that super hard to fix, but i fixed it

!!! Nobody can read the dwarf specification and write the dwarf parser without hacking the binutils lab. Dwarf is just too complex and lots of algorithms in it. Now i can use peter-dwarf to parse out my c++ kernel. The dwarf stub that generated by c++ is *MUCH* more complex the c. https://sourceforge.net/p/peter-dwarf/code/358/ fixed these…

describe how to exact bytes from memory

my colleague suggested me to use this method to describe how to exact bytes from memory: using pairs of 2-numbers. The formula is that: So if the formula is “1,2”, then x1 is 1, y1 is 2 . That mean it will exact 1 byte then jump to 2 offset and keep do it repeatedly.…
