Axion comes with a set of commands to browse the trace and set the currently selected transition in a debugger-like fashion: step into, step out, step over... forward and backward in the trace.
|step over backward
Shift + F10
|step into backward
Shift + F11
|step out backward
Shift + F12
Use step out to exit the current function:
- step out forward to go to the instruction after the
- step out backward to go the
call instruction, use:
- step into to enter the function (go to the
- step over to skip the function and go to the instruction after the
On any other instruction, step into and step over would both go to the next instruction.
ret instruction, use:
- step into backward to enter the function
- step over backward to skip the function and go to the
On any other instruction, step into backward and step over backward would both go to the previous instruction.
If the destination of a debugging command was not recorded in the trace (comes from before or after the trace), the step action has no effect and a message is displayed in the status bar and logged in the log widget
percent plugin adds the capability of jumping between stack memory
accesses. If the currently selected instruction writes something on the stack,
percent will go to the next instruction reading the memory. Conversely, if the
current instruction is reading some value on the stack,
percent will jump to
the previous instruction writing the memory. In practice, this is very useful
