       dissy - graphical frontend for objdump


       Dissy  is  a  disassembler  for  Linux and UNIX which supports multiple
       architectures and allows easy navigation through  the  code.  Dissy  is
       implemented  in  Python and uses objdump for disassembling files. Dissy
       can be used for debugging, reverse engineering and  checking  compiler-
       generated code.

       -t BASE_ADDRESS
              Use BASE_ADDRESS as the start address of the disassembled code

       -h     Display usage

Features and usage

       * Dissy shows jumps with red links to the destination address

       * A label is used to show call destinations

       *  Clicking  (or pressing enter) on calls or jumps will take you to the
       destination function / address

       * Dissy supports interactive searching for labels  and  addresses  both
       for functions and instructions

       * Browser-like history navigation (back/forward) is available, which is
       useful for example to lookup callchains.  Alt-Left  and  Alt-Right  are
       used to navigate back and forward

       *  The  lookup  (use  Ctrl-l  to  access) feature allows for looking up
       pasted addresses or labels. The lookup is intelligent in that it  tries
       to  convert  common  patterns  into  numbers  before reverting to label
       lookup. Pasting multiple addresses or names will lookup  each  in  turn
       and stop at the last (access the earlier in the history)

       *  The  highlight  field (ues Ctrl-k to access) allows the disassembled
       text to be highlighted for example to show all accesses  to  a  certain
       register. Regular expressions are allowed in this field

       *  The  preferences  window  can be used to select which objdump to use
       (which can also be controlled by  the  OBJDUMP  environment  variable).
       Colors can also be selected in this window.
