NAME
       adb - general-purpose debugger

SYNOPSIS
       adb [-kw] [-I dir] [-P prompt] [-V mode]	[ object [ core]]

DESCRIPTION
       The  adb	utility	is an interactive, general-purpose debugger. It	can be
       used to examine files and provides a controlled environment for the ex-
       ecution of programs.

       The  adb	 utility is now	implemented as a link to the mdb(1) utility in
       Solaris 9. mdb(1) is a low-level	debugging utility that can be used  to
       examine	user processes as well as the live operating system or operat-
       ing system crash	dumps. The new mdb(1) utility provides complete	 back-
       wards  compatibility  with the existing syntax and features of adb, in-
       cluding support for processing adb macro	files. The Solaris Modular De-
       bugger Guide and	mdb(1) man page	describes the features of mdb, includ-
       ing its adb compatibility mode. This mode will be activated by  default
       when the	adb link is executed.
