Sun Studio 12: Debugging a Program With dbx

loadobject -exclude Command

The loadobject -exclude command tells dbx not to automatically load load objects matching the specified regular expression.


loadobject -exclude ex_regexp [-clear]


ex_regexp is a regular expression.

This command prevents dbx from automatically loading symbols for load objects that match the specified regular expression. Unlike regexp in other loadobject subcommands, if ex_regexp is not specified, it does not default to all. If you do not specify ex_regexp, the command lists the excluded patterns that have been specified by previous loadobject -exclude commands.

If you specify -clear, the list of excluded patterns is deleted.

Currently this functionality cannot be used to prevent loading of the main program, or the runtime linker. Also, using it to prevent loading of C++ runtime libraries could cause the failure of some C++ functionality.

This option should not be used with runtime checking (RTC).
