Package dwarf provides access to DWARF debugging information loaded from executable files, as defined in the DWARF 2.0 Standard at http://dwarfstd.org/doc/dwarf-2.0.0.pdf.


This package is not designed to be hardened against adversarial inputs, and is outside the scope of https://go.dev/security/policy. In particular, only basic validation is done when parsing object files. As such, care should be taken when parsing untrusted inputs, as parsing malformed files may consume significant resources, or cause panics.

type Class added in go1.5

type Class int

A Class is the DWARF 4 class of an attribute value.

In general, a given attribute's value may take on one of several possible classes defined by DWARF, each of which leads to a slightly different interpretation of the attribute.

DWARF version 4 distinguishes attribute value classes more finely than previous versions of DWARF. The reader will disambiguate coarser classes from earlier versions of DWARF into the appropriate DWARF 4 class. For example, DWARF 2 uses "constant" for constants as well as all types of section offsets, but the reader will canonicalize attributes in DWARF 2 files that refer to section offsets to one of the Class*Ptr classes, even though these classes were only defined in DWARF 3.

const (
	// ClassUnknown represents values of unknown DWARF class.
	ClassUnknown Class = iota

	// ClassAddress represents values of type uint64 that are
	// addresses on the target machine.

	// ClassBlock represents values of type []byte whose
	// interpretation depends on the attribute.

	// ClassConstant represents values of type int64 that are
	// constants. The interpretation of this constant depends on
	// the attribute.

	// ClassExprLoc represents values of type []byte that contain
	// an encoded DWARF expression or location description.

	// ClassFlag represents values of type bool.

	// ClassLinePtr represents values that are an int64 offset
	// into the "line" section.

	// ClassLocListPtr represents values that are an int64 offset
	// into the "loclist" section.

	// ClassMacPtr represents values that are an int64 offset into
	// the "mac" section.

	// ClassRangeListPtr represents values that are an int64 offset into
	// the "rangelist" section.

	// ClassReference represents values that are an Offset offset
	// of an Entry in the info section (for use with Reader.Seek).
	// The DWARF specification combines ClassReference and
	// ClassReferenceSig into class "reference".

	// ClassReferenceSig represents values that are a uint64 type
	// signature referencing a type Entry.

	// ClassString represents values that are strings. If the
	// compilation unit specifies the AttrUseUTF8 flag (strongly
	// recommended), the string value will be encoded in UTF-8.
	// Otherwise, the encoding is unspecified.

	// ClassReferenceAlt represents values of type int64 that are
	// an offset into the DWARF "info" section of an alternate
	// object file.

	// ClassStringAlt represents values of type int64 that are an
	// offset into the DWARF string section of an alternate object
	// file.

	// ClassAddrPtr represents values that are an int64 offset
	// into the "addr" section.

	// ClassLocList represents values that are an int64 offset
	// into the "loclists" section.

	// ClassRngList represents values that are a uint64 offset
	// from the base of the "rnglists" section.

	// ClassRngListsPtr represents values that are an int64 offset
	// into the "rnglists" section. These are used as the base for
	// ClassRngList values.

	// ClassStrOffsetsPtr represents values that are an int64
	// offset into the "str_offsets" section.

func (Class) GoString added in go1.5

func (Class) String added in go1.5

func (i Class) String() string

type CommonType

type CommonType struct {
	ByteSize int64  // size of value of this type, in bytes
	Name     string // name that can be used to refer to type

A CommonType holds fields common to multiple types. If a field is not known or not applicable for a given type, the zero value is used.

func (*CommonType) Common

func (c *CommonType) Common() *CommonType

func (*CommonType) Size

func (c *CommonType) Size() int64

type ComplexType

type ComplexType struct {

A ComplexType represents a complex floating point type.

type Data

type Data struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

Data represents the DWARF debugging information loaded from an executable file (for example, an ELF or Mach-O executable).

func New

func New(abbrev, aranges, frame, info, line, pubnames, ranges, str []byte) (*Data, error)

New returns a new Data object initialized from the given parameters. Rather than calling this function directly, clients should typically use the DWARF method of the File type of the appropriate package debug/elf, debug/macho, or debug/pe.

The []byte arguments are the data from the corresponding debug section in the object file; for example, for an ELF object, abbrev is the contents of the ".debug_abbrev" section.

func (*Data) AddSection added in go1.14

func (d *Data) AddSection(name string, contents []byte) error

AddSection adds another DWARF section by name. The name should be a DWARF section name such as ".debug_addr", ".debug_str_offsets", and so forth. This approach is used for new DWARF sections added in DWARF 5 and later.

func (*Data) AddTypes added in go1.3

func (d *Data) AddTypes(name string, types []byte) error

AddTypes will add one .debug_types section to the DWARF data. A typical object with DWARF version 4 debug info will have multiple .debug_types sections. The name is used for error reporting only, and serves to distinguish one .debug_types section from another.

func (*Data) LineReader added in go1.5

func (d *Data) LineReader(cu *Entry) (*LineReader, error)

LineReader returns a new reader for the line table of compilation unit cu, which must be an Entry with tag TagCompileUnit.

If this compilation unit has no line table, it returns nil, nil.

func (*Data) Ranges added in go1.7

func (d *Data) Ranges(e *Entry) ([][2]uint64, error)

Ranges returns the PC ranges covered by e, a slice of [low,high) pairs. Only some entry types, such as TagCompileUnit or TagSubprogram, have PC ranges; for others, this will return nil with no error.

func (*Data) Reader

func (d *Data) Reader() *Reader

Reader returns a new Reader for Data. The reader is positioned at byte offset 0 in the DWARF “info” section.

func (*Data) Type

func (d *Data) Type(off Offset) (Type, error)

Type reads the type at off in the DWARF “info” section.

type DecodeError

type DecodeError struct {
	Name   string
	Offset Offset
	Err    string

func (DecodeError) Error

func (e DecodeError) Error() string

type DotDotDotType

type DotDotDotType struct {

A DotDotDotType represents the variadic ... function parameter.

func (*DotDotDotType) String

func (t *DotDotDotType) String() string

type Entry

type Entry struct {
	Offset   Offset // offset of Entry in DWARF info
	Tag      Tag    // tag (kind of Entry)
	Children bool   // whether Entry is followed by children
	Field    []Field

An entry is a sequence of attribute/value pairs.

func (*Entry) AttrField added in go1.5

func (e *Entry) AttrField(a Attr) *Field

AttrField returns the Field associated with attribute Attr in Entry, or nil if there is no such attribute.

func (*Entry) Val

func (e *Entry) Val(a Attr) any

Val returns the value associated with attribute Attr in Entry, or nil if there is no such attribute.

A common idiom is to merge the check for nil return with the check that the value has the expected dynamic type, as in:

v, ok := e.Val(AttrSibling).(int64)

type EnumType

type EnumType struct {
	EnumName string
	Val      []*EnumValue

An EnumType represents an enumerated type. The only indication of its native integer type is its ByteSize (inside CommonType).

func (*EnumType) String

func (t *EnumType) String() string

type EnumValue

type EnumValue struct {
	Name string
	Val  int64

An EnumValue represents a single enumeration value.

type Field

type Field struct {
	Attr  Attr
	Val   any
	Class Class

A Field is a single attribute/value pair in an Entry.

A value can be one of several "attribute classes" defined by DWARF. The Go types corresponding to each class are:

DWARF class       Go type        Class
-----------       -------        -----
address           uint64         ClassAddress
block             []byte         ClassBlock
constant          int64          ClassConstant
flag              bool           ClassFlag
  to info         dwarf.Offset   ClassReference
  to type unit    uint64         ClassReferenceSig
string            string         ClassString
exprloc           []byte         ClassExprLoc
lineptr           int64          ClassLinePtr
loclistptr        int64          ClassLocListPtr
macptr            int64          ClassMacPtr
rangelistptr      int64          ClassRangeListPtr

For unrecognized or vendor-defined attributes, Class may be ClassUnknown.

type FloatType

type FloatType struct {

A FloatType represents a floating point type.

type IntType

type IntType struct {

An IntType represents a signed integer type.

type LineEntry added in go1.5

type LineEntry struct {
	// Address is the program-counter value of a machine
	// instruction generated by the compiler. This LineEntry
	// applies to each instruction from Address to just before the
	// Address of the next LineEntry.
	Address uint64

	// OpIndex is the index of an operation within a VLIW
	// instruction. The index of the first operation is 0. For
	// non-VLIW architectures, it will always be 0. Address and
	// OpIndex together form an operation pointer that can
	// reference any individual operation within the instruction
	// stream.
	OpIndex int

	// File is the source file corresponding to these
	// instructions.
	File *LineFile

	// Line is the source code line number corresponding to these
	// instructions. Lines are numbered beginning at 1. It may be
	// 0 if these instructions cannot be attributed to any source
	// line.
	Line int

	// Column is the column number within the source line of these
	// instructions. Columns are numbered beginning at 1. It may
	// be 0 to indicate the "left edge" of the line.
	Column int

	// IsStmt indicates that Address is a recommended breakpoint
	// location, such as the beginning of a line, statement, or a
	// distinct subpart of a statement.
	IsStmt bool

	// BasicBlock indicates that Address is the beginning of a
	// basic block.
	BasicBlock bool

	// PrologueEnd indicates that Address is one (of possibly
	// many) PCs where execution should be suspended for a
	// breakpoint on entry to the containing function.
	// Added in DWARF 3.
	PrologueEnd bool

	// EpilogueBegin indicates that Address is one (of possibly
	// many) PCs where execution should be suspended for a
	// breakpoint on exit from this function.
	// Added in DWARF 3.
	EpilogueBegin bool

	// ISA is the instruction set architecture for these
	// instructions. Possible ISA values should be defined by the
	// applicable ABI specification.
	// Added in DWARF 3.
	ISA int

	// Discriminator is an arbitrary integer indicating the block
	// to which these instructions belong. It serves to
	// distinguish among multiple blocks that may all have with
	// the same source file, line, and column. Where only one
	// block exists for a given source position, it should be 0.
	// Added in DWARF 3.
	Discriminator int

	// EndSequence indicates that Address is the first byte after
	// the end of a sequence of target machine instructions. If it
	// is set, only this and the Address field are meaningful. A
	// line number table may contain information for multiple
	// potentially disjoint instruction sequences. The last entry
	// in a line table should always have EndSequence set.
	EndSequence bool

A LineEntry is a row in a DWARF line table.

type LineFile added in go1.5

type LineFile struct {
	Name   string
	Mtime  uint64 // Implementation defined modification time, or 0 if unknown
	Length int    // File length, or 0 if unknown

A LineFile is a source file referenced by a DWARF line table entry.

type LineReader added in go1.5

type LineReader struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

A LineReader reads a sequence of LineEntry structures from a DWARF "line" section for a single compilation unit. LineEntries occur in order of increasing PC and each LineEntry gives metadata for the instructions from that LineEntry's PC to just before the next LineEntry's PC. The last entry will have the [LineEntry.EndSequence] field set.

func (*LineReader) Files added in go1.14

func (r *LineReader) Files() []*LineFile

Files returns the file name table of this compilation unit as of the current position in the line table. The file name table may be referenced from attributes in this compilation unit such as AttrDeclFile.

Entry 0 is always nil, since file index 0 represents "no file".

The file name table of a compilation unit is not fixed. Files returns the file table as of the current position in the line table. This may contain more entries than the file table at an earlier position in the line table, though existing entries never change.

func (*LineReader) Next added in go1.5

func (r *LineReader) Next(entry *LineEntry) error

Next sets *entry to the next row in this line table and moves to the next row. If there are no more entries and the line table is properly terminated, it returns io.EOF.

Rows are always in order of increasing entry.Address, but entry.Line may go forward or backward.

func (*LineReader) Reset added in go1.5

func (r *LineReader) Reset()

Reset repositions the line table reader at the beginning of the line table.

func (*LineReader) Seek added in go1.5

func (r *LineReader) Seek(pos LineReaderPos)

Seek restores the line table reader to a position returned by LineReader.Tell.

The argument pos must have been returned by a call to LineReader.Tell on this line table.

func (*LineReader) SeekPC added in go1.5

func (r *LineReader) SeekPC(pc uint64, entry *LineEntry) error

SeekPC sets *entry to the LineEntry that includes pc and positions the reader on the next entry in the line table. If necessary, this will seek backwards to find pc.

If pc is not covered by any entry in this line table, SeekPC returns ErrUnknownPC. In this case, *entry and the final seek position are unspecified.

Note that DWARF line tables only permit sequential, forward scans. Hence, in the worst case, this takes time linear in the size of the line table. If the caller wishes to do repeated fast PC lookups, it should build an appropriate index of the line table.

func (*LineReader) Tell added in go1.5

func (r *LineReader) Tell() LineReaderPos

Tell returns the current position in the line table.

type LineReaderPos added in go1.5

type LineReaderPos struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

A LineReaderPos represents a position in a line table.

type Offset

type Offset uint32

An Offset represents the location of an Entry within the DWARF info. (See Reader.Seek.)

type PtrType

type PtrType struct {
	Type Type

A PtrType represents a pointer type.

func (*PtrType) String

func (t *PtrType) String() string

type QualType

type QualType struct {
	Qual string
	Type Type

A QualType represents a type that has the C/C++ "const", "restrict", or "volatile" qualifier.

func (*QualType) Size

func (t *QualType) Size() int64

func (*QualType) String

func (t *QualType) String() string

type Reader

type Reader struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

A Reader allows reading Entry structures from a DWARF “info” section. The Entry structures are arranged in a tree. The Reader.Next function return successive entries from a pre-order traversal of the tree. If an entry has children, its Children field will be true, and the children follow, terminated by an Entry with Tag 0.

func (*Reader) AddressSize added in go1.5

func (r *Reader) AddressSize() int

AddressSize returns the size in bytes of addresses in the current compilation unit.

func (*Reader) ByteOrder added in go1.14

func (r *Reader) ByteOrder() binary.ByteOrder

ByteOrder returns the byte order in the current compilation unit.

func (*Reader) Next

func (r *Reader) Next() (*Entry, error)

Next reads the next entry from the encoded entry stream. It returns nil, nil when it reaches the end of the section. It returns an error if the current offset is invalid or the data at the offset cannot be decoded as a valid Entry.

func (*Reader) Seek

func (r *Reader) Seek(off Offset)

Seek positions the Reader at offset off in the encoded entry stream. Offset 0 can be used to denote the first entry.

func (*Reader) SeekPC added in go1.7

func (r *Reader) SeekPC(pc uint64) (*Entry, error)

SeekPC returns the Entry for the compilation unit that includes pc, and positions the reader to read the children of that unit. If pc is not covered by any unit, SeekPC returns ErrUnknownPC and the position of the reader is undefined.

Because compilation units can describe multiple regions of the executable, in the worst case SeekPC must search through all the ranges in all the compilation units. Each call to SeekPC starts the search at the compilation unit of the last call, so in general looking up a series of PCs will be faster if they are sorted. If the caller wishes to do repeated fast PC lookups, it should build an appropriate index using the Ranges method.

func (*Reader) SkipChildren

func (r *Reader) SkipChildren()

SkipChildren skips over the child entries associated with the last Entry returned by Reader.Next. If that Entry did not have children or Reader.Next has not been called, SkipChildren is a no-op.

type StructField

type StructField struct {
	Name          string
	Type          Type
	ByteOffset    int64
	ByteSize      int64 // usually zero; use Type.Size() for normal fields

A StructField represents a field in a struct, union, or C++ class type.

Bit Fields

The BitSize, BitOffset, and DataBitOffset fields describe the bit size and offset of data members declared as bit fields in C/C++ struct/union/class types.

BitSize is the number of bits in the bit field.

DataBitOffset, if non-zero, is the number of bits from the start of the enclosing entity (e.g. containing struct/class/union) to the start of the bit field. This corresponds to the DW_AT_data_bit_offset DWARF attribute that was introduced in DWARF 4.

BitOffset, if non-zero, is the number of bits between the most significant bit of the storage unit holding the bit field to the most significant bit of the bit field. Here "storage unit" is the type name before the bit field (for a field "unsigned x:17", the storage unit is "unsigned"). BitOffset values can vary depending on the endianness of the system. BitOffset corresponds to the DW_AT_bit_offset DWARF attribute that was deprecated in DWARF 4 and removed in DWARF 5.

At most one of DataBitOffset and BitOffset will be non-zero; DataBitOffset/BitOffset will only be non-zero if BitSize is non-zero. Whether a C compiler uses one or the other will depend on compiler vintage and command line options.

Here is an example of C/C++ bit field use, along with what to expect in terms of DWARF bit offset info. Consider this code:

struct S {
	int q;
	int j:5;
	int k:6;
	int m:5;
	int n:8;
} s;

For the code above, one would expect to see the following for DW_AT_bit_offset values (using GCC 8):

       Little   |     Big
       Endian   |    Endian
"j":     27     |     0
"k":     21     |     5
"m":     16     |     11
"n":     8      |     16

Note that in the above the offsets are purely with respect to the containing storage unit for j/k/m/n -- these values won't vary based on the size of prior data members in the containing struct.

If the compiler emits DW_AT_data_bit_offset, the expected values would be:

"j":     32
"k":     37
"m":     43
"n":     48

Here the value 32 for "j" reflects the fact that the bit field is preceded by other data members (recall that DW_AT_data_bit_offset values are relative to the start of the containing struct). Hence DW_AT_data_bit_offset values can be quite large for structs with many fields.

DWARF also allow for the possibility of base types that have non-zero bit size and bit offset, so this information is also captured for base types, but it is worth noting that it is not possible to trigger this behavior using mainstream languages.
