This project is not part of the GNU Project.

mbdump is a small utility to dump information in a multiboot or multiboot2 header in a nice human readable format. Multiboot and Multiboot 2 are (incompatible) standards that dictate the way a compliant bootloader (grub and grub2 being the most common examples) can start a compliant os.

Give the program an os image as an argument and it will print the information it finds. Note that kernel images are sometimes compressed; you have to decompress them to let this program read them. Also note that the Linux kernel is not Multiboot compliant.

This is the first Multiboot specification
https://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/multiboot/multiboot.html
and this is the second
