Build Status Coverage Status

gimli is a library for reading and writing the DWARF debugging format.

  • Zero copy: everything is just a reference to the original input buffer. No copies of the input data get made.

  • Lazy: you can iterate compilation units without parsing their contents. Parse only as many debugging information entry (DIE) trees as you iterate over. gimli also uses DW_AT_sibling references to avoid parsing a DIE's children to find its next sibling, when possible.

  • Cross-platform: gimli makes no assumptions about what kind of object file you're working with. The flipside to that is that it's up to you to provide an ELF loader on Linux or Mach-O loader on macOS.

    • Unsure which object file parser to use? Try the cross-platform object crate. See the gimli-examples crate for usage with gimli.

Install

Add this to your Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
gimli = "0.30.0"

The minimum supported Rust version is:
