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

pr_renameinject rename system call into victim process

pr_rename(struct ps_prochandle *P, const char *old, const char *new);

The () function injects the rename(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 rename(2) on the currently running process.

The arguments old and new have the same meaning as in rename(2). See rename(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_rename() function's return value is that described in rename(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 rename(2).

The pr_rename() 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).
