qb-blackbox - Man Page

Display "flight data" from the "blackbox".


qb-blackbox [blackbox-file...]


qb-blackbox prints out the logs (including debug logs) that were recorded using libqb's blackbox mechanism.

Portability notes

Due to variations amongst platforms, some of which directly impact the libqb's blackbox format handling (e.g. page size), there's currently only the commitment that qb-blackbox shall decode the blackbox files recorded at the same platform (plus the same page size) while using libqb compiled with the same relevant compile-time options (e.g. USE_CACHE_LINE_ALIGNMENT) as linked to this decoder. Otherwise, your mileage may vary.
