Symbols Browser offers search through different types of objects - variables, functions, constants, typedefs, types, modules, code labels and macros.
Macros will only be available when #define analysis is enabled for the specific symbol file - Go to go to Debug menu / Configure Session / Applications / Edit button / Symbol Files and double click on the selected file, then hit in Download file dialog / #define tab. More information under chapter Symbol Files.
All symbols matching the criteria will be shown. Click on the symbol name for more information.
ELF download file format: The symbols available in this list depend on the debug information in the download file. By default only the symbols which are found in the debug sections are shown.
If some symbols are missing go to go to Debug menu / Configure Session / Applications / Edit button / Symbol Files and hit the Advanced button and enable suitable check boxes. More information in the chapter Symbol Files.
