  1. Interesting. I wonder if something like this can be used to trace a binary program that crashes when run? Then you could tell what steps it’s executing on that cause the fatal event…

    • Hi Leroy,

      Yeah, I know you’ve probably figured this out by now, but it seemed like a good idea to answer your question anyway so that others that stumble on your question will find an answer as well.

      Absolutely! In fact, that is one of my most common uses for ptrace. Very handy for finding exactly where in the process it crashes.

  2. Cool illustration.
