Introduction --------------- ltrace is a debugging tool, similar to strace, but it traces library calls instead of system calls. 2. Where can I find it ---------------------- http://www.ltrace.org 3. How does it work ------------------- Using software breakpoints, just like gdb. 4. Where does it work --------------------- It works with ELF based Linux systems running on i386, m68k, S/390, ARM, PowerPC, PowerPC64, IA64, AMD64, SPARC and Alpha processors. It is part of at least Debian GNU/Linux, RedHat, SuSE, Mandrake... 5. Bugs ------- Too many to list here :). If you like to submit a bug report, or a feature request, either do that against the Debian `ltrace' package, or mail email@example.com. This file is very incomplete and out-of-date. 6.
