From the wiki on Stabs

stabs (sometimes written STABS) is a debugging data format for storing information about computer programs for use by symbolic and source-level debuggers.

Does Radare support this?

1 Answer 1


radare2 is not a source level debugger, thus there is no support for STABS. That said, you can always use gdb as a backend for radare2 either by connecting radare2 to a running gdb session or by using the gdbserver.

radare2 allows remote debugging over the gdb remote protocol. So you can run a gdbserver and connect to it with radare2 for remote debugging. The syntax for connecting is:

$ r2 -d gdb://<host>:<port>
