Extracting Debug Information from binary (ELF/DWARF?) file. (CodeWarrior for Coldfire Version 6.4)

I am trying to extract the debug symbol information from the binary output file of the compiler.

 

(Specifically I want to get Structure Field names and Offsets for certain structures in my program)

 

This information looks like it is in the .debug section of the ELF file output.

 

But I can't seem to get the "standard" programs from the internet:  readelf, objdump to dump the fields.  I think

they may be using a different format of the DWARF specification.

 

Are there any utilities that can dump the debug information?  Or shall I continue rolling my own?

 

Thanks,

 

Rufus
