[lldb-dev] GetSymbolContext(lldb.eSymbolContextEverything)

The variables are available through the frame in your symbol context. You have a line of code commented out in your script:

                    #variable = frame.GetVariables(target,True,True,True)

Change it to:

get_arguments = True # Get argument variables
get_locals = True # Get local variables
get_statics = True # Get globals and static variables
get_in_scope_only = True # only get variables that are in scope
use_dynamic = lldb.eDynamicDontRunTarget # Get dynamic types for variables
variables = frame.GetVariables (get_arguments, get_locals, get_statics, get_in_scope_only, use_dynamic)
print variables

This output will look different from the output in "image lookup --address 0x... --verbose" because we have an actual frame here so we can dump the variable value itself because we have a stack frame that allows us to have variable values. If you want the location of the variable you can also print that in a for loop using "variables" from above:

for variable in variables:
    print str(variable)
    print "Location = %s" % (variable.GetLocation())

Each "variable" object is a lldb.SBValue type. There are many API calls on these that you can call manually depending on what you want. Let me know if you have any questions.

But when I print return value of GetSymbolContext(lldb.eSymbolContextEverything), it doesnt contain the decoding of local variables which the above commands can print out local variables.
