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

Ppriv, Ppriv_free
get and free process privilege sets

Process Control Library (libproc, -lproc)

#include <libproc.h>

Ppriv(struct ps_prochandle *P, prpriv_t **pprv);

Ppriv_free(struct ps_prochandle *P, prpriv_t *prv);

The Ppriv() function obtains the privilege set of the process handle P. The privilege set, if it exists, will be dynamically allocated and a pointer to it will be placed in pprv. It must be released with a call to Ppriv_free(). The definition of the prpriv_t structure is documented in proc(5).

The Ppriv_free() function releases the storage in prv that was allocated as a result of calling Ppriv().

Upon successful completion, the Ppriv() function returns 0 and pprv is updated with a pointer to the allocated privilege set. Otherwise, -1 is returned and pprv is not updated.
