Looking at assembly code with gdb

    I generally use objdump -dr to look at generated code.

    While gdb can do it, objdump is the tool designed for the job.

    (There are arguments to select the range objdump disassembles, but I find it easier to just pipe the output through less and search.)

    1. I prefer gdb but it is true that objdump works well too.

    1. Godbolt is great but it is not always possible to use it conveniently.

  3. Have you tried radare? Would be interesting to know your review of it.
