Procedure Linkage Table (PLT). It outputs the caller, the calle and the
parameters as each call is executed.
-F, –from FROMLIST
Trace calls from objects on FROMLIST.
-T, –to TOLIST
Trace calls to objects on TOLIST.
Also show exits from the function calls.
Trace child processes as they are created by currently traced
processes as a result of the fork(2) system call.
-o, –output FILE
Write output to FILENAME (or FILENAME. in case -f is also used)
instead of standard error.
