PGETAUXVAL(3PROC) Process Control Library Functions PGETAUXVAL(3PROC)

obtain auxiliary vector value

Process Control Library (libproc, -lproc)

#include <libproc.h>

Pgetauxval(struct ps_prochandle *P, int type);

The Pgetauxval() function looks up the entry type in the auxiliary vector of the process handle P and returns its value. The type argument should be the entry of the auxiliary vector. The list of such types may be found in <sys/auxv.h>.

Upon successful completion, the Pgetauxval() function returns the value of the auxiliary vector entry type. Otherwise, -1 is returned to indicate that either the auxiliary vector or the type entry could not be found.


See LOCKING in libproc(3LIB).
