Hi,

whats the api in libdwarf which is functionally similar to addr2line utility?
I glanced through the documentation and couldn't find anything relevant.

Thanks

You'll get better answers in a forum devoted to libdwarf.
<http://dwarfstd.org/> has links to both a wiki and a mailing list.

The mailing list seems to be silent. It's been several weeks my subscription to them mailing list has not been responded and also I don't see any activity either.

Ah, there's your problem - This isn't a mailing list.

This is a usenet newsgroup. Google Groups gives you access to this
newsgroup as if it were a mailing list, but I'd strongly recommend
accessing it more directly (the only reason I'm using Google Groups to
respond to your message is that I don't have access to my own computer
right now). You need an account on a usenet news server (I normally use
<www.eternalseptember.org>, which is absolutely free, but there's many
others to choose from) and install a usenet newsreader (I personally
like mozilla thunderbird <https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/> - but
again, there's many to choose from).

I responded to your first message on January 11th, pointing out that the
wiki and the mailing list at <http://dwarfstd.org> are both probably
better places to ask your question than this one.

Also according to Google Groups, this newsgroup has had 137 messages
appear on 7 other threads since your first message was posted. If you
haven't seen any of those messages, there's something wrong with Google
Groups' handling of your mailing list subscription - which wouldn't be
the least bit surprising.

Since you didn't see those other messages, I'm also going to send this
to your private e-mail, just in case.

There are months missing in the collection, implying
bursty activity. On a quiet month, perhaps no archive
file is generated.

I made a mistake, and posted a response based upon the same
misunderstanding. I've cancelled that message, but cancel commands are
not very effective.
He was responding to my message which recommended that he go to the
mailing list at <http://dwarfstd.org>, so it seems likely that the
mailing list he's referring to was that one. I have no suggested
alternatives for him. I'll simply note that since the dwarf standard has
an official site, if the associated mailing list isn't very active, the
prospects are pretty bleak for finding dwarf experts anywhere else to
answer your question.

I doubt that - the August 2004 archive was only 401 bytes long,
containing only a single message, and there's many other months where
the archive file was almost that small. Perhaps the January 2019 one
just hasn't been released yet.

Ah, I see.

As for DWARF, I was once a member of the Unix International group that standardized it. But that
was a long time (and four employers) ago; while I regularly use DWARF utilities
like addr2line and one of my favorites from the dwarves package, pahole, I can no longer claim to be an
expert on DWARF.

Without the original context (my newsreader doesn't maintain local copies of the article
cache; not unsurprising since it also dates from the early 90's), I can't be of more help
I'm afraid.
