Command edit-flags

The edit-flags command (alias: flags) provides a quick and comprehensible way to view and edit the flag register for the architectures that support it. Without argument, the command will simply return a human-friendly display of the register flags.

One or many arguments can be provided, following the syntax below:

gef➤ flags [(+|-|~)FLAGNAME ...]

Where FLAGNAME is the name of the flag (case insensitive), and +|-|~ indicates the action on whether to set, unset, or toggle the flag.

For instance, on x86 architecture, if we don't want to take a conditional jump (e.g. a jz instruction), but we want to have the Carry flag set, simply go with:

gef➤ flags -ZERO +CARRY
