|PREOPEN(3PROC)||Process Control Library Functions||PREOPEN(3PROC)|
Preopen — reopen a
Process Control Library (libproc, -lproc)
function is used to regain control of the process represented by the handle
P. A loss of control is indicated by the
Pstatus(3PROC) function returning
PS_LOST. This may occur when the
controlled process performs an exec(2)
of a setuid or setgid binary or one where the controlling process cannot
read the object file. For more information on this, see the
NOTES section of proc(5).
If successful, the controlling process will obtain control of the process specified by P. If it fails, the controlling process should release the handle with Prelease(3PROC). Note there are occasions where due to permissions it may not be possible to obtain control again.
