       dissy - graphical frontend for objdump


       Dissy  is  a  disassembler  for  Linux  and UNIX which supports multiple architectures and
       allows easy navigation through the code. Dissy is implemented in Python and  uses  objdump
       for disassembling files. Dissy can be used for debugging, reverse engineering and checking
       compiler-generated code.

       -t BASE_ADDRESS
              Use BASE_ADDRESS as the start address of the disassembled code

       -h     Display usage

Features and usage

       * Dissy shows jumps with red links to the destination address

       * A label is used to show call destinations

       * Clicking (or pressing enter) on calls or jumps will take you to the destination function
       / address

       *  Dissy  supports  interactive  searching for labels and addresses both for functions and

       * Browser-like history navigation (back/forward) is available, which is useful for example
       to lookup callchains. Alt-Left and Alt-Right are used to navigate back and forward

       *  The  lookup  (use  Ctrl-l  to access) feature allows for looking up pasted addresses or
       labels. The lookup is intelligent in that it tries to convert common patterns into numbers
       before  reverting to label lookup. Pasting multiple addresses or names will lookup each in
       turn and stop at the last (access the earlier in the history)

       * The highlight  field  (ues  Ctrl-k  to  access)  allows  the  disassembled  text  to  be
       highlighted  for  example  to show all accesses to a certain register. Regular expressions
       are allowed in this field

       * The preferences window can be used to select which objdump to use  (which  can  also  be
       controlled  by  the  OBJDUMP  environment  variable).  Colors can also be selected in this
