Solaris 8 (SPARC Platform Edition) 2/02 Release Notes

crash(1M) Utility

The crash(1M) utility might no longer be supported in a future release. The crash command is a utility that examines system crash dump files, which is a capability that is superseded by the new mdb(1) utility.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 are making the transition from using crash to using mdb.
