Using IDA, can I specify 2 Sub-Routines (really, it's 2 WINAPI calls) and have IDA create a "map" between the 2 points? I want to know all the possible branches the EIP can take from one instruction to another instruction.

I am using IDA-Pro 6.0 (or 6.1).

Thank you.

Edit - I can only use static analysis tools for this.

  • Thank you for such a fast reply. I will look at this. I edited my question just now to include a detail about require a static analysis solution.

  • Do you want to find a path between two functions ?

  • The solution in the post I linked to does not rely on dynamic analysis BTW.

You can use the alleycat plugin to find the path between two functions/basic blocks etc.


Finding the path between two functions http_init_main and http_parser_set_challenge in a mipsel elf.

  1. Go to View -> Find paths from current function to...

    enter image description here

  2. Select the target function.

    enter image description here

  3. Alleycat would display the path to reach the selected function from initial function. Additionally, the corresponding basic blocks would be highlighted in the graph view.
