Setting symbol names

Post by ptr0x »

Hi there, and thanks for reading my topic.

I'm having some troubles when analyzing some big function.

I just can not find nothing about set the name of some symbols, like local variables, arguments and so on.

It would be very much helpful if I could name local variables.

I found that the OllyDbg read the .PDB file to set and name the symbols, but if I'm analyzing some PE without his PDB, what could I do? I thought that perhaps there was some PDB generator or something like this.

Is there some plugin or some other way to solve this issue?

Thanks very much.

Probably not quite the solution you're looking for, but Mapgen is an extended version of the Mapconv IDA to Olly plugin which supports exporting local variables, enums, struct offsets, etc. A lot of extra work just to beautify the Olly output, but it does work to a degree.
