proc_lwp_range_valid — test
and validate thread ranges
Process Control Library (libproc, -lproc)
proc_lwp_in_set(const char *set,
proc_lwp_range_valid() functions provide means
for testing the validity of thread ranges and whether a thread is in a
A thread range is a series of one or more series of range identifiers which describe a collection of threads. These are often used by programs such as pbind(8), pstack(1), prun(1), pstop(1), and others as a means for a user to specify a selection of threads from inside of a process.
More formally, the thread range may be described as:
An LWP range may be specified as one of the following four strings. The following table shows the string formats and the corresponding set of valid threads that match it:
|-n||lwpid <= n|
|n-m||n <= lwpid <= m|
|n-||lwpid >= n|
|n||lwpid == n|
For example, the thread range -2,4-5,7,8- matches thread with IDs 0-2, 4-5, 7, and any thread id 8 or greater.
function determines whether or not the character string
set is a valid thread range based on the rules above.
Note, the empty string, the
NULL pointer, or
otherwise are not valid.
function determines whether the thread identifier
lwpid is contained in the set described by
set. If set is the
NULL pointer, then every thread matches the set.
Upon successful completion, the proc_lwp_in_set function returns 1 to indicate lwpid is in set. Otherwise, 0 is returned to indicate that lwpid is not in set.
Upon successful completion, the proc_lwp_range_valid function returns 0 to indicate set is valid. Otherwise, -1 is returned to indicate that the set is invalid.
