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

NAME


Lctlfd - obtain the thread control file descriptor

SYNOPSIS


Process Control Library (libproc, -lproc)
#include <libproc.h>

int
Lctlfd(struct ps_lwphandle *L);

DESCRIPTION


The Lctlfd() function returns a file descriptor to the underlying /proc
file system ctl file for the thread identified by the handle L. This may
be used for injecting control operations manually; however, many interfaces
for using it are provided by libproc(3LIB) itself.

The file descriptor is invalidated when the thread handle is released
through Lfree(3PROC). The caller must not call close(2) on the returned
file descriptor.

INTERFACE STABILITY


Uncommitted

MT-LEVEL
See LOCKING in libproc(3LIB).
