Description Jason Baietto 2002-07-16 16:11:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020625

Description of problem:
In earlier versions of Red Hat the readelf --debug-dump=info option would print
out only the dwarf2 info sections.  On Limbo, a warning is produced if any
'=attribute' is specified:

   readelf: Warning: Unrecognized debug option 'info'

in spite of the that both the --help and info output claim that this is
supported.  For large object files, the inability to filter debug sections is
very inconvenient.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile hello.c with -g
2. run readelf --debug-dump=info a.out > /tmp/output
3. see warning on stderr
4. see unfiltered output in /tmp/output


Actual Results:  soybean$ readelf --debug-dump=info a.out > /dev/null
readelf: Warning: Unrecognized debug option 'info'
