              ABI Dumper (abi-dumper) Dump ABI of an ELF object containing DWARF debug info

              ABI  Dumper is a tool for dumping ABI information of an ELF object containing DWARF
              debug info.

              The tool is intended to be used with ABI Compliance Checker tool for  tracking  ABI
              changes of a C/C++ library or kernel module.

       -o|-output PATH

              Path to the output ABI dump file.  Default: ./ABI.dump


              Sort data in ABI dump.


              Print ABI dump to stdout.


              Print all warnings.

       -vnum NUM

              Set version of the library to NUM.

       -extra-info DIR

              Dump extra analysis info to DIR.


              Do not  dump  information  about  inline  functions,  pure  virtual  functions  and
              non-exported global data.


              Dump unused data types.


              Dump symbols not exported by the object.

       -symbols-list PATH

              Specify a file with a list of symbols that should be dumped.


              Do not dump stdc++ and gnu c++ symbols.


              Equal to: -all-types -all-symbols.


              Dump static (local) symbols.

       -compare OLD.dump NEW.dump

              Show added/removed symbols between two ABI dumps.

       -alt PATH

              Path  to  the  alternate  debug  info  (Fedora).  It is detected automatically from
              gnu_debugaltlink section of the input object if not specified.


              Show full paths of source files.

       -vt-dumper PATH

              Path to the vtable-dumper executable if it is  installed  to  non-default  location
              (not in PATH).

       -public-headers PATH

              Path  to  directory  with  public  header  files or to file with the list of header
              files. This option allows to filter out private symbols from the ABI dump.
