I have a question.
I believe objdump can't show line numbers for a stripped program.
But 'objdump -l' can do that in some cases ?
I think it's because objdump knows debug version library from
.note.gnu.build-id or gnu_debuglink section (for example under
see the following code in bfd/dwarf2.c
debug_filename = bfd_follow_build_id_debuglink (abfd, DEBUGDIR);
if (debug_filename == NULL)
debug_filename = bfd_follow_gnu_debuglink (abfd, DEBUGDIR);
Thank you! I understood the reason.
