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

NAME


proc_get_priv, proc_free_priv - get process privileges

SYNOPSIS


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

prpriv_t *
proc_get_priv(pid_t pid);

void
proc_free_priv(prpriv_t *prp);

DESCRIPTION


The proc_get_priv() function is a convenient way to read the /proc
privilege file for the process pid. The proc_get_priv() function takes
care of allocating memory for the privilege set and ensures that it is
large enough to hold all of the privilege sets. The definition of the
prpriv_t structure may be found in proc(4).

The proc_free_priv() function releases the memory that was allocated by a
call to proc_get_priv(). It is safe to pass the NULL pointer in as prp,
the function will simply return without taking any action in that case.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, the proc_get_priv() function returns a pointer
to an allocated prpriv_t with the privileges of pid. Otherwise, NULL is
returned to indicate an error occurred.
