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

NAME


pr_unlink - inject unlink system call into victim process

SYNOPSIS


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

int
pr_unlink(struct ps_prochandle *P, const char *path);

DESCRIPTION


The pr_unlink() function injects the unlink(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 unlink(2) on the currently
running process.

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

The pr_unlink() 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_unlink() function's return value is that
described in unlink(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 unlink(2).

The pr_unlink() 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
