# emacs-buffer.gdb --- gdb macros for recovering buffers from emacs coredumps

# Copyright (C) 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

# Maintainer: Noah Friedman <friedman@splode.com>
# Status: Works with Emacs 22.0.51.1 (prerelease) as of 2006-01-12.
#         Older cvs snapshots, and released versions, will not work due to
#         changes in lisp data structures.  But there are older versions of
#         this gdb script which work with those versions.

# Commentary:

# This is a set of gdb macros for recovering the contents of buffers from
# an Emacs coredump; they may not always be file-backed or have a recent
# autosave.
#
# The Emacs executable must have debugging symbols for this to work.
# But you never strip Emacs, right?
#
# The main commands of interest are `ybuffer-list', `yfile-buffers',
# `ysave-buffer', and `ybuffer-contents'.  The `y' prefix avoids any
# namespace collisions with emacs/src/.gdbinit.

# Example usage:
#
#     $ gdb /export/src/emacs/2005-05-02--03-17/src/emacs core.emacs.6.9845
#     Current directory is /u/noah/

  end
end
document ybuffer-list
  Display a list of buffer names, sizes, and other attributes.
  The buffer number in the first column is used as an argument
  to some other emacs-buffer recovery commands, e.g. `ysave-buffer'.
end

define yfile-buffers
  set $yfile_buffers_only = 1
  ybuffer-list
end
document yfile-buffers
  Display a list of buffers which are associated with files.
  This is like `ybuffer-list', but only buffers that were visiting files
  are displayed.
end

  Set current buffer (for other emacs-buffer recovery commands) to the ARG'th
  buffer as displayed by `ybuffer-list'.

  yset-buffer $arg0

  #print *$beg@($gap - $beg)
  #print *$gap_end@($end - $gap_end)
end
document yget-buffer-pointers
  Update convenience variables with address pointers for the ARG'th buffer
  as displayed by `ybuffer-list'.

  This also sets the current buffer using `yset-buffer' (which see).
end

define yget-current-buffer-name
  set $this = $ycurrent_buffer->name
  ygetptr $this
  set $ycurrent_buffer_name = ((struct Lisp_String *) $ptr)->data
end
document yget-current-buffer-name
  Set $ycurrent_buffer_name to the name of the currently selected buffer.
end

define ycurrent-buffer
  yget-current-buffer-name
  printf "%s\n", $ycurrent_buffer_name
end
document ycurrent-buffer
  Display the currently selected buffer.
end

  if $buf->z_byte > 1
    if $buf->z_byte <= $buf->gpt_byte
      set $endptr = $beg + $buf->gpt_byte - 1
      dump binary memory $arg1 $beg $endptr
    else
      dump   binary memory $arg1 $beg $gap-1
      append binary memory $arg1 $gap_end $end
      set $endptr = $end
    end
  end
end
document ydump-buffer
  Write contents of buffer N (as numbered according to `ybuffer-list') to
  file FILE.

  This is mainly used as an internal subroutine for `ysave-buffer' and
  `ybuffer-contents', which see.
end

define ysave-buffer
  ydump-buffer $arg0 $arg1
  if $yverbose
    yget-current-buffer-name
    if $buf->z_byte <= 1
      printf "[Buffer \"%s\" is empty.]\n", $ycurrent_buffer_name
    else
      # Output string broken into separate calls as necessary to avoid
      # requiring a running process for evaluation.
      printf "[Wrote buffer \"%s\" to file ", $ycurrent_buffer_name
      echo $arg1]\n
    end
  end
end
document ysave-buffer
  Save contents of buffer N (as numbered according to `ybuffer-list') to
  file FILE.
end

define ybuffer-contents
  ydump-buffer $arg0 /dev/stdout
  if $yverbose && $buf->z_byte <= 1
    yget-current-buffer-name
    printf "[Buffer \"%s\" is empty.]\n", $ycurrent_buffer_name
  else
    if *($endptr-1) != '\n'
      echo \n
    end
  end
end
document ybuffer-contents
  Write contents of buffer N (numbered according to `ybuffer-list') to stdout.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
