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

ps_lgetregs, ps_lsetregs, ps_lgetfpregs, ps_lsetfpregs, ps_lgetxregsize, ps_lgetxregs, ps_lsetxregs - routines that access the target process register in libthread_db

ps_err_e ps_lgetregs(struct ps_prochandle *ph, lwpid_t lid,

prgregset_t gregset);

ps_err_e ps_lsetregs(struct ps_prochandle *ph, lwpid_t lid,

static prgregset_t gregset);

ps_err_e ps_lgetfpregs(struct ps_prochandle *ph, lwpid_t lid,

prfpregset_t *fpregs);

ps_err_e ps_lsetfpregs(struct ps_prochandle *ph, lwpid_t lid,

static prfpregset_t *fpregs);

ps_err_e ps_lgetxregsize(struct ps_prochandle *ph, lwpid_t lid,

int *xregsize);

ps_err_e ps_lgetxregs(struct ps_prochandle *ph, lwpid_t lid,

caddr_t xregset);

ps_lgetregs(), ps_lsetregs(), ps_lgetfpregs(), ps_lsetfpregs(), ps_lgetxregsize(), ps_lgetxregs(), ps_lsetxregs() read and write register sets from lightweight processes (LWPs) within the target process identified by ph. ps_lgetregs() gets the general registers of the LWP identified by lid, and ps_lsetregs() sets them. ps_lgetfpregs() gets the LWP's floating point register set, while ps_lsetfpregs() sets it.

ps_lgetxregsize(), ps_lgetxregs(), and ps_lsetxregs() are used to get and set the extended register set. Support for an extended register set depends on both the instruction-set architecture and the specific CPU (e.g. while x86 supports xregs, their availability depends on the CPU's support for the xsave feature set). On platforms without support for these, controlling processes will still need to define them; however, they are allowed to simply return errors.

ps_lgetxregsize() returns in *xregsize the size of the architecture-dependent extra state registers. ps_lgetxregs() gets the extra state registers, and ps_lsetxregs() sets them. When getting the registers, the size of xregset must be at least the size returned by ps_lgetxregsize().
