Operating system auxiliary vector
Some operating systems supply an "auxiliary vector" to programs at
startup. This is akin to the arguments and environment that you
specify for a program, but contains a system-dependent variety of
binary values that tell system libraries important details about the
hardware, operating system, and process. Each value's purpose is
identified by an integer tag; the meanings are well-known but
system-specific. Depending on the configuration and operating system
facilities, GDB may be able to show you this information.
Display the auxiliary vector of the inferior, which can be either a
live process or a core dump file. GDB prints each tag value
numerically, and also shows names and text descriptions for
recognized tags. Some values in the vector are numbers, some bit
masks, and some pointers to strings or other data. GDB displays
each value in the most appropriate form for a recognized tag, and
in hexadecimal for an unrecognized tag.
