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

pr_openinject open system call into victim process

Process Control Library (libproc, -lproc)

#include <libproc.h>

pr_open(struct ps_prochandle *P, const char *filename, int flags, mode_t mode);

The () function injects the open(2) system call into the target process P by means of the agent LWP. If the process handle P is the value NULL then this will be equivalent to calling open(2) on the currently running process.

The arguments filename, flags, and mode have the same meaning as in open(2). See open(2) for the full description and purpose of the system call and its arguments.

The () function only works on active processes. Process handles that correspond to core files, zombie processes, or ELF objects do not support system call injection.

Upon successful completion, the pr_open() function's return value is that described in open(2). Otherwise, is returned and is set to ENOSYS to indicate that the system call could not be injected.

For the full list of errors see the ERRORS section in open(2).

The pr_open() function will fail if:

An error occurred while trying to invoke the agent LWP and inject a system call in the process handle P or the process handle P does not support system call injection.

See in libproc(3LIB).
