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

NAME


Pplatform - get platform string

LIBRARY


Process Control Library (libproc, -lproc)

SYNOPSIS


#include <libproc.h>

char *
Pplatform(struct ps_prochandle *P, char *buffer, size_t bufsize);

DESCRIPTION


The Pplatform() function determines the name of the platform for the
process handle P. Up to bufsize characters, including the null terminator,
will be copied into buffer.

The platform is the value reported by the -s option to uname(1). For
example, on x86 systems, the value will be i86pc.

Note, process handles that correspond to a file, created by
Pgrab_file(3PROC), will not report a platform and the Pplatform() function
will fail.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, the Pplatform() function returns buffer.
Otherwise, NULL is returned, errno is set, and buffer is not updated.

ERRORS


The Pplatform() function will fail if:

ENODATA P refers to a core file and there is no NT_PLATFORM ELF
note available.

EFAULT P refers to a live process and buffer is an invalid
address.

INTERFACE STABILITY


Uncommitted

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