pbc_disassemble — parrot bytecode disassembler

Synopsis

pbc_disassemble [-bh?] [--bare|--header-only] [-o outfile] [file.pbc]

Description

"pbc_disassemble" translates Parrot bytecode ("PBC") into Parrot assembly language ("PASM").

"file.pbc" is the bytecode file to disassemble. If a file is not specified, the bytecode will be read from "stdin". Additionally, if the "-o" switch is not given, the output is displayed to "stdout".

Options

-?, --help
Displays usage and help information.
-b, --bare
Displays bare PASM without the header and left column.
-h, --header-only
Displays only the constants table header.
-o filename, --output filename
Writes output to "filename".

Static Functions

"int main(int argc, const char *argv[])"
Execution entry point. Starts up an interpreter, loads the bytecode from the command-line, and disassembles it.
"static void help(void)"
Prints out the user help information and exits.
"static void show_last_error_and_exit(Parrot_PMC interp)"
Prints out the "interp"'s last error and exits.
