dhex_searchlog man page

dhex_searchlog — search log file for dhex

Description

Searchlogs for dhex(1) are stored in searchlog files. This manpage describes the format of those files.

Example

A typical searchlog file looks like this:

 

#DHEX SEARCHLOG

 

#VERSION 0

 

#Search was for d0 0f af fe

 

#lines are all in hex

 

0000000000002385

 

0000000000002e21

 

0000000000006acb

 

0000000000006b8b

 

000000000000cd27

 

Options

In the example above, the file has two sections: A comment section, and an offset section.

Comments

Comments are indicated with a '#' character. Everything afterwards in a line is being ignored when parsing the file

Offset section

Offsets are 64 bit addresses presented as hexadecimal values. It is the offset where the searchstring occurred as result when the searchlog was written. And it is also where the next search is being conducted when reading the searchlog.
