           addr2line [-b bfdname|--target=bfdname]
                     [-e filename|--exe=filename]
                     [-f|--functions] [-s|--basename]
                     [-H|--help] [-V|--version]
                     [addr addr ...]


           addr2line translates addresses into file names and line numbers.  Given
           an address in an executable or an offset in a section of a relocatable
           object, it uses the debugging information to figure out which file name
           and line number are associated with it.
           The executable or relocatable object to use is specified with the -e
           option.  The default is the file a.out.  The section in the relocatable
           object to use is specified with the -j option.
           addr2line has two modes of operation.
           In the first, hexadecimal addresses are specified on the command line,
           and addr2line displays the file name and line number for each address.
           In the second, addr2line reads hexadecimal addresses from standard
           input, and prints the file name and line number for each address on
           standard output.  In this mode, addr2line may be used in a pipe to
           convert dynamically chosen addresses.
           The format of the output is FILENAME:LINENO.  The file name and line
           number for each address is printed on a separate line.  If the -f
           option is used, then each FILENAME:LINENO line is preceded by a
           FUNCTIONNAME line which is the name of the function containing the
           If the file name or function name can not be determined, addr2line will
           print two question marks in their place.  If the line number can not be
           determined, addr2line will print 0.


           The long and short forms of options, shown here as alternatives, are
           -b bfdname
               Specify that the object-code format for the object files is
               Decode (demangle) low-level symbol names into user-level names.
               Display only the base of each file name.
               If the address belongs to a function that was inlined, the source
               information for all enclosing scopes back to the first non-inlined
               function will also be printed.  For example, if "main" inlines
               "callee1" which inlines "callee2", and address is from "callee2",
               the source information for "callee1" and "main" will also be
               Read offsets relative to the specified section instead of absolute
               Read command-line options from file.  The options read are inserted
               in place of the original @file option.  If file does not exist, or
               cannot be read, then the option will be treated literally, and not
               Options in file are separated by whitespace.  A whitespace
               character may be included in an option by surrounding the entire
               option in either single or double quotes.  Any character (including
               a backslash) may be included by prefixing the character to be
               included with a backslash.  The file may itself contain additional
               @file options; any such options will be processed recursively.
