Solaris 8 (SPARC Platform Edition) 10/00 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 The crash command is a utility that examines system crash dump files, whose functionality is superseded by the new mdb(1) utility.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.

"Transition From crash" in Solaris Modular Debugger Guide provides information for users who wish to transition from using crash to using mdb.
