A2N - Address-to-Name for Linux


A2N maintains a database of modules and symbols and attempts to answer the following questions:

In other words, A2N's job is to collect and maintain enough information so that given an address and process id (PID) it can resolve the symbol corresponding to that address in that process.

For the most part all the drudgery of using A2N is hidden by POST. A2N does export an API which allows a user to take advantage of A2N's functionality if they so desire. The API is described in a2n.h and is identical on all supported platforms.

A2N is distributed as on Linux.
