Sun Studio 12: Debugging a Program With dbx

Linker Names

dbx provides a special syntax for looking up symbols by their linker names (mangled names in C++). Prefix the symbol name with a # (pound sign) character (use the ksh escape character \ (backslash) before any $ (dollar sign) characters), as in these examples:

(dbx) stop in #.mul
(dbx) whatis #\$FEcopyPc
(dbx) print `foo.c`#staticvar
