My original point was to build something a bit more powerful and generic than a
PTRACE system call for Linux platforms. The problem with
PTRACE is that it only run on your own system and architecture.
An idea would be to run a virtual machine (or, better, an emulator) with a different operating system and a (possibly) different architecture on it.
The features I want are similar to the
PTRACE interface (freeze execution, step by step runs, memory and registers read and write, ...) all with several OSes and several architectures.
- Did I forgot some similar projects in my list ?
- Can the QEmu monitor interface provide a system/architecture agnostic
PTRACEinterface just as I want ? And, if not, what are the main issues I might run into while implementing it inside QEmu ?
