  • Multi glibc support

A quick use of this tool.

You can also use it as a gdb plugin, very useful when pwndbg or other plugins failed to analysis heap.

sed -i “1i source `pwd`/gdbscript.py” ~/.gdbinit # alternatively, you can add that line manually


It does not support gdb python3 for now. Anyone who can make it python3 compatible are welcome.
