Process Control Library (libproc, -lproc)

#include <libproc.h>

Pupdate_maps(struct ps_prochandle *P);

The () function is used to verify that all of the cached mappings in the process P are still valid and update the cached data with any new information. This is generally called in response to activity by the run-time link-editor. In general, the library takes care of managing the need to call this function; however, debuggers, introspection tools, and others that are interposing on rtld activity or other actions, may need to call this function. Note that the Pupdate_maps() function is only meaningful for active processes. It will do nothing on process handles that refer to core files, zombie processes, and ELF objects.

See in libproc(3LIB).
