In android development, we often encounter segmentation errors.That is sigsegv (11), at this time libc's backtrace will print the corresponding stack information, and what you see is just a pair of numbers,Seems impossible to check.

Such as the following string break error:

The lib on our board is often stripped, and there is no symbol information.However, we can obtain the corresponding symbol information through the library generated during compilation.The compiler also provides us with the corresponding tool:addr2line full name:arm-eabi-addr2line, which can be found in the corresponding board source directory.

Through the fault analysis above,The library located at system/lib/libwebcore.so has broken errors.It can be pulled down and analyzed line by line.The command is:arm-eabi-addr2line -f -e ~/desktop/libwebcore.so 0038f2de

This analysis is also applicable to libraries developed using jni.
