DESCRIPTION

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-j 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.
