Command-line Options

The radare core accepts many flags from command line.

An excerpt from usage help message:

   -w           open file in write mode

Common usage patterns of command-line options.

  • Open a file in write mode without parsing the file format headers.

    $ r2 -nw file

  • Quickly get into an r2 shell without opening any file.

    $ r2 -

Specify which sub-binary you want to select when opening a fatbin file:

$ r2 -a ppc -b 32 ls.fat

Run a script before showing interactive command-line prompt:

$ r2 -i patch.r2 target.bin

Execute a command and quit without entering the interactive mode:

$ r2 -qc ij hi.bin > imports.json

Configure an eval variable:

$ r2 -e scr.color=false blah.bin

Debug a program:

$ r2 -d ls

Use an existing project file:

$ r2 -p test
