PROC_CONTENT2STR(3PROC) Process Control Library Functions

NAME


proc_content2str, proc_str2content - convert a string to and from a
core_content_t

SYNOPSIS


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

int
proc_content2str(core_content_t content, char *buf, size_t size);

int
proc_str2content(const char *str, core_content_t *cp);

DESCRIPTION


The proc_content2str() function converts the contents of a process (whether
active or a core file) from content into a string and writes up to size
characters, including the null-terminator, into buf.

A content string will be a series of one or more tokens concatenated
together with the + or - characters, indicating that the subsequent token
should be added or subtracted from the previous ones. The full list of
tokens and constants is available in the core_content_t portion of the
TYPES section in libproc(3LIB).

The proc_str2content() function takes the character string str and based on
the format described in the previous paragraph, converts it back into a
core_content_t which is placed into cp.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, the proc_content2str() function will return the
number of characters written into buf, excluding the terminating null
character.

Upon successful completion, the proc_str2content() function will return 0.
Otherwise, -1 will be returned to indicate an unknown string.
