I have created simple code to test using lldb . This is the first time i am using lldb and i am familiar with gdb. while i am trying to disassemble the unix executable file its not working any commands i should use . Or i should try other , if so can you provide me a list of disassembler,decompiler and debugger for unix and windows 64bit processors which supports scripting too. I have searched for them but could't find. can you suggest me list of good disassemblers.

    "not working" is not very helpful description. What exactly are you trying and what (error) messages do you get?

What are you trying, exactly? Here are some disassemble commands for use within LLDB:

disassemble --frame: Disassemble the currently running function.

disassemble -a 0x1234: Disassemble the function containing the address 0x1234

disassemble -n _foo: Disassemble the function called "_foo"

Try help disassemble to learn more.

As for a list of good disassemblers on various platforms, it depends whether you have a lot of disposable income or not. IDA Pro is the best but it costs around $1000. If that's prohibitive, Google can help you find lists of free and cheap tools.


I would recommend Capstone (www.capstone-engine.org), which is widely used and cross-platform/cross-architecture. It has a very good Python binding, so you can write your script as LLDB plugin or GDB plugin.
