$ SHOW IMAGE PATCH Show Image Version 1.2 29-SEP-2004 07:52:08.41 WORK1:[SWEENEY.CLIUTL]PATCH.EXE;65 This is an OpenVMS IA64 (Elf format) executable image file Image Identification Information Image name: PATCH Global Symbol Table name: PATCH Image file identification: X-6 Image build identification: <unavailable> Link identification: Linker T02-14 Link Date/Time: 28-SEP-2004 07:49:17.57 Patch Date/Time: Never Manipulation Date/Time: 29-SEP-2004 07:51:58.73 Image Dynamic Data Version: 1.1 Image Completion Code Value: SUCCESS State: Original Image Link Flags state: Manipulated Current Image Flags Original Link Flags ------------------- ------------------- IMGSTA CALL_DEBUG MAIN IMGSTA TBK_IN_IMG MAIN DBG_IN_IMG TBK_IN_IMG DBG_IN_IMG Image Link Flag Description --------------- ------------------------------------- CALL_DEBUG : Call debugger IMGSTA : Call SYS$IMGSTA MAIN : Image has main transfer TBK_IN_IMG : Traceback records in image file DBG_IN_IMG : Debug records in image file
In this example, the SHOW IMAGE command displays the attributes of the file PATCH.EXE located in the current working directory. The image was modified from the original attributes on 29-SEP-2004.
The image link flags output indicates the image was changed to not call the debugger at image startup. The output also shows that the traceback symbols and the debugger symbols are present in the image file.
The first line of output displays the version of SHOW IMAGE installed on the system. The line titled "Image Dynamic Data Version" shows the version of SHOW IMAGE that was available when the image was linked. Future updates to the I64 ELF image format might cause the image dynamic data version to increase. When the image version does not match the SHOW IMAGE version, a new version of SHOW IMAGE might be required to display the new ELF format data.
$ SHOW IMAGE SYS$LIBRARY:DCLTABLES Show Image Version 1.2 29-SEP-2004 07:59:48.07 SYS$COMMON:[SYSLIB]DCLTABLES.EXE;928 This is an OpenVMS IA64 (Elf format) executable image file Image Identification Information Image name: DCLTABLES Global Symbol Table name: DCLTABLES Image file identification: 0-0 Image build identification: XAAU-BL1-0000 Link identification: Linker T02-02 Link Date/Time: 12-MAY-2004 14:39:38.30 Patch Date/Time: Never Manipulation Date/Time: Never Image Dynamic Data Version: <unavailable> Image Completion Code Value: SUCCESS State: Original Image Link Flags state: <unavailable>
