- Subject: How to do "info address" directly from python?
Hi, I can obtain the address of a non-debug symbol in python by doing:
gdb.execute("info address %s" % symbol, to_string=True)
and then parsing the result, but is there a way to obtain that information
directly using the python api? I've tried things like
gdb.lookup_global_symbol, gdb.lookup_type and gdb.parse_and_eval but none
of them return anything.
I'd prefer not to use gdb.execute as it sometimes gets the output of the
command mixed up with the output of a preceding gdb.write.
