Debug disassembled code

In situations when source code is unavailable, you can step into and debug the disassembled code in the dedicated view.

The dissasembly view

Access the Disassembly view

  • When debugging your code, use the Force Step Into the Force Step into icon ⌥⇧F7 command instead of Step Into F7. Step Into behaves as Step Over for functions with no source code.

  • Navigate to the desired frame in the Debug Tool window.

  • The disassembly view opens automatically when you launch a debug session for the attached process that does not provide debug information.

Syntax highlighting is available for AT&T assembly code. By default, the .s and .asm files are recognized as assembly code files, but you can configure other types. To do this, in the Preferences dialog ⌘,, go to Editor | File Types. Select Assembly Language in the list of recognized file types and add a new extension to the list.

To investigate your code in the disassembly view, use regular stepping actions. Note that Run to Cursor, Evaluate Expression, and breakpoints-related actions are not supported.

You can find a desired function by its name or address using the Go to search string. Note that currently the search by name does not work for member functions.
