Sun dump is much like GNU objdump.
Sun pvs is something like readelf and ldd.

I've never been able to figure out how to make use of the output of this
command. Knowing that the symbol at address 0x1234 has version string
FOO_5.5 is good, I guess, but what's the name of that symbol?
I suspect that there's a script floating around Out There that combines
this output with that of nm to produce something more useful to humans.
Now I need to find it. Or write it.

not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
