    The nm command ships with a number of later versions of Unix and similar operating systems. nm is used to examine binary files and to display the contents of those files, or meta information stored in them, specifically the symbol table. The output from nm distinguishes between various symbol types. For example, it differentiates between a function that is supplied by an object module and a function that is required by it. nm is used as an aid for debugging, to help resolve problems arising from name conflicts and C++ name mangling, and to validate other parts of the toolchain. The GNU Project ships an implementation of nm as part of the GNU Binutils package.
