There are several other commands to print information about the selected
When used without any argument, this command does not change which
frame is selected, but prints a brief description of the currently
selected stack frame. It can be abbreviated f. With an
argument, this command is used to select a stack frame. Refer to Section 8.3 Selecting a frame.
info frame, info f
This command prints a verbose description of the selected stack frame,
the address of the frame
the address of the next frame down (called by this frame)
the address of the next frame up (caller of this frame)
the language in which the source code corresponding to this frame is written
the address of the frame's arguments
the address of the frame's local variables
the program counter saved in it (the address of execution in the caller frame)
which registers were saved in the frame
The verbose description is useful when
something has gone wrong that has made the stack format fail to fit
the usual conventions.
info frame addr, info f addr
Print a verbose description of the frame at address addr, without
selecting that frame. The selected frame remains unchanged by this
command. This requires the same kind of address (more than one for some
architectures) that you specify in the frame command. Refer to Section 8.3 Selecting a frame.
Print the arguments of the selected frame, each on a separate line.
Print the local variables of the selected frame, each on a separate
line. These are all variables (declared either static or automatic)
accessible at the point of execution of the selected frame.
Print a list of all the exception handlers that are active in the
current stack frame at the current point of execution. To see other
exception handlers, visit the associated frame (using the up,
down, or frame commands); then type info catch. Refer to Section 7.1.3 Setting catchpoints.
