SYNOPSIS

asf [-afksx] [modules-path [outfile]]

DESCRIPTION

By default, asf reads kldstat(8) output from standard input and writes to standard output a list of gdb(1) commands to add symbol files from KLDs in subdirectories of the subdirectory modules of the current directory, which is intended to be a kernel build directory. This allows gdb(1) to load the symbols into the debugging environment.

If modules-path is specified, asf uses it for the modules directory instead of the default modules. This is useful when building in a non-standard location (i.e., not /usr/src and /usr/obj).

If outfile is specified, asf writes to it instead of standard output.

OPTIONS

The following options modify the function of asf:
-a When writing to an explicit outfile, append to the file rather than overwriting it.
-f Instead of trying to simplistically guess the path for each module, perform a traversal in the same way that find(1) does to locate an exact path for each module, no matter where in modules-path it is located.
-k Instead of reading from standard input, start a kldstat(8) and read the information from it.
-s Do not prepend a (guessed) subdirectory of the module path.
-x Normally asf looks for KLDs with names of the form <module.ko.debug>. The -x option tells asf to look for KLDs with names of the form <module.ko>.
