Disect - Symbolic dissassembler & debugger.
Dave M. Alderson
Disect is a very powerful combined disassembler/debugger program,
which has been designed to be easy to use. Its power is achieved at the
expense of memory: the minimum requirement is 1Mb; for larger projects,
2Mb will be required.
The debugger allows an executable file, a disk boot-block, a binary
file, or an area of memory to be loaded and created as a Process. It is
even possible to grab an existing memory-resident Process. A Process's
instructions can be executed individually, or the Process can be
activated, with or without breakpoints installed. System exceptions can
be trapped before they crash the machine, and program symbols can be
read from executable files.
The disassembler allows a loaded program to be commented, have blank
lines inserted, and have it's numbers and addresses replaced with
constant or program symbols. All the symbols of Release 3 of the system
include files are available to the disassembler. A program which has
been dissected in this way can then be saved as two source files: a
program file, and a support file. The support file will contain EQUs for
all required constant symbols.
Disect requires Release 2 of the Amiga operating system; it also
requires the ASL library, and GadTools library.
Requested shareware fee is 20 uk pounds.
The version available on aminet is a 98% functional demo version which
is freely distributable, but remains copyrighted D.M. Alderson 1995.
