Solaris 8 (SPARC Platform Edition) Online Release Notes Update

crash(1M) Utility

The crash(1M) utility may no longer be supported in a future release. The crash command is a utility that examines system crash dump files, whose functionality is superseded by the new mdb(1) utility. The crash command's interface has been structured around implementation details, such as slots, that have no relation to the Solaris operating system implementation.

To enable the transition the Solaris 8 operating environment includes documentation about the mdb syntax that is equivalent to each crash subcommand.
