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

NAME


pr_gettaskid - inject gettaskid system call into victim process

SYNOPSIS


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

taskid_t
pr_gettaskid(struct ps_prochandle *P);

DESCRIPTION


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

The pr_gettaskid() 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_gettaskid() function's return value is
that described in gettaskid(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 gettaskid(2).

The pr_gettaskid() 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).
