grokevt-dumpmsgs(1) A tool for dumping the contents of message databases built previously by grokevt-ripdll(1).


grokevt-dumpmsgs message-db1 [message-db2 ...] .SH DESCRIPTION grokevt-dumpmsgs takes one or more message databases previously built with grokevt-ripdll(1) and prints out all entries to stdout. This is mainly a debugging tool, but may be useful for analyzing the message contents of PE files while developing other applications.


grokevt-dumpmsgs uses the following arguments:
If multiple message databases are supplied, entries of all databases are printed to stdout in the order they are provided.


grokevt-dumpmsgs prints each database entry out on a single line, in two comma-separated columns. The first column is the message ID, which is in the format:


Here, XXXX represents the message's language code, and the YYYYYYYY represents the message's relative virtual address (RVA) within the message block of the PE file. The second column contains the message itself. Messages containing special characters (such as newlines or commas) are encoded in the same manner that grokevt-parselog(1) encodes them ("\xQQ" where QQ is the hexadecimal value of the character).


Probably several. This particular script has not been extensively tested.
