NAME

       pldd - display dynamic shared objects linked into a process

SYNOPSIS

       pldd pid
       pldd option

DESCRIPTION

       The  pldd  command  displays a list of the dynamic shared objects that are linked into the
       process with the specified process ID.  The list includes the  libraries  that  have  been
       dynamically loaded using dlopen(3).

OPTIONS

       -?, --help
              Display program help message.

       --usage
              Display a short usage message.

       -V, --version
              Display the program version.

EXIT STATUS

       On  success,  pldd  exits with the status 0.  If the specified process does not exist, the
       user does not have permission to access its dynamic shared object list, or no command-line
       arguments  are  supplied,  pldd exists with a status of 1.  If given an invalid option, it
       exits with the status 64.

VERSIONS

       pldd is available since glibc 2.15.

CONFORMING TO

       The pldd command is not specified by POSIX.1.  Some other systems have a similar command.

NOTES

       The command

           lsof -p PID

       also shows output that includes the dynamic shared objects that are linked into a process.

       The gdb(1) info shared command also shows the shared libraries being used by a process, so
       that  one  can  obtain  similar  output  to pldd using a command such as the following (to
       monitor the process with the specified pid):

           $ gdb -ex "set confirm off" -ex "set height 0" -ex "info shared" \
                   -ex "quit" -p $pid | grep '^0x.*0x'

BUGS

       Since glibc 2.19, pldd is broken: it just hangs when executed.  It is unclear if  it  will
       ever be fixed.

EXAMPLE

       $ echo $$               # Display PID of shell
       1143
       $ pldd $$               # Display DSOs linked into the shell
       1143:     /usr/bin/bash
