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

NAME


pr_close - inject close system call into victim process

SYNOPSIS


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

int
pr_close(struct ps_prochandle *P, int fd);

DESCRIPTION


The pr_close() function injects the close(2) system call into the target
process P by means of the agent LWP. If the process handle P is NULL then
this is equivalent to calling close(2) on the currently running process.

The argument fd has the same meaning as in close(2). See close(2) for the
full description and purpose of the close system call and its arguments.

The pr_close() function only works on active processes. Process handles
that correspond to core files, zombie processes, or ELF objects do not
support system call injection.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, the pr_close() function's return value is that
described in close(2). Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to
ENOSYS to indicate that the system call could not be injected.

ERRORS


For the full list of errors see the ERRORS section in close(2).

The pr_close() function will fail if:

ENOSYS 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.

INTERFACE STABILITY


Uncommitted

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