Crash Dump Analysis Patterns (Part 6b, Mac OS X)

This is a Mac OS X / GDB counterpart to NULL Pointer (data) pattern previously described for Windows platforms:

(gdb) bt
#0  0×000000010d3b0e90 in bar () at main.c:15
#1  0×000000010d3b0ea9 in foo () at main.c:20
#2  0×000000010d3b0ec4 in main (argc=1,
argv=0×7fff6cfafbf8) at main.c:25

(gdb) disassemble
Dump of assembler code for function bar:
0x000000010d3b0e80 <bar+0>: push   %rbp
0×000000010d3b0e81 <bar+1>: mov    %rsp,%rbp
0×000000010d3b0e84 <bar+4>: movq   $0×0,-0×8(%rbp)
0×000000010d3b0e8c <bar+12>: mov    -0×8(%rbp),%rax
0×000000010d3b0e90 <bar+16>: movl   $0×1,(%rax)
0×000000010d3b0e96 <bar+22>: pop    %bp
0×000000010d3b0e97 <bar+23>: retq
End of assembler dump.

(gdb) p/x $rax
$1 = 0×0
