GammaRay - Qt-application inspection and manipulation tool.


gammaray [--pid <pid> | <application> <args> | --connect <host>[:<port>]


GammaRay inspects runtime internals of a Qt-application, such as:
Object tree, properties, signal/slots, widgets, models,
graphics views, javascript debugger, resources,
state machines, meta types, fonts, codecs, text documents

When run without any options, gammaray will present a list of running Qt-applications from
which you can attach the selected injector. Else, you can attach to a running process by
specifying its pid, or you can start a new Qt-application by specifying its name (and
optional arguments).


Print help message and exit.

Print version information and exit.

-p, --pid <pid>
Attach to running Qt application with the specified pid.

-i, --injector <injector>
Set the specified injection type.

Supported injectors are:
preload (Linux, Mac OS)
gdb (Linux. requires gdb to be installed)
windll (Windows)

Use the Gammaray 1.x in-process UI. This is not necessary in most cases, apart from
using tools that do not work remotely.

This will only inject the GammaRay probe into a process, but not start the GammaRay
UI. This is useful for example when doing remote debugging on embedded devices.

--listen <address>
Specify on which network address the GammaRay server should listen, default is
(ie. all of them). This can be used for example on Windows to avoid firewall warnings
by setting the address to if you don't need remote access.

Disables the GammaRay server. This implies --inprocess as there is no other way to
connect to the GammaRay probe in this case.

List all installed probes.

--probe <abi>
Explicitly specify which probe to use. You should use this if you have more than one
probe installed (e.g. one for Qt4 and one for Qt5), until probe ABI auto-detection is

--connect <host[:port]>
Connect to a target with an already injected GammaRay probe. Useful for example for
remote debugging.


Run gammaray on the Qt-application "qtfoo" with command line arguments 'arg1' and 'arg2':
% gammaray /path/to/qtfoo arg1 arg2

Invoke gammaray on the Qt-application running with pid 1234:
% gammaray --pid 1234

Invoke gammaray on with injector gdb on Qt-application running with pid 1234:
% gammaray --injector gdb --pid 1234


Exits with 0 under normal operation; otherwise, exists with a positive integer indicating
a problem occurred while launching or attaching an injector.
