Sun VirtualBox Disassembler Explantation

Rate this Entry
Hey,

because i needed a good disassembler for my projects i check different distributions in the internet. most of them are homebrew and the support, or lets better talk about MAINTAINANCE is in most cases not the best.

I really hate it if use a component and realize that there is a bug and the releaser of the component is not able to fix it or sometimes has no real interest in fixing it. That sucks.

Thats why i focused on a disassembler which is well maintained and last but not least a good one.

During my search i stumbled over VirtualBox, which is an similar SUN implementation of VMWARES Workstation. The difference is that VirtualBox comes with source, or at least you can download the source ( http://www.sun.com/software/products/virtualbox/get.jsp ).

I thought that the pretty sure have to have an working disassembler inside there virtual machine and bingo....they have.
The problem was that the disassembler was not contained in form of a library, it was simple integrated in the source.

It took me about 2 hours to explant the needed source parts out of virtualbox and built a project for a library for it.

I now use it for my projects and it is very usefull for me.

There is only one problem you will discover when you try the example. I looking forward for your solutions for the problem
