Every program that links libthread_db or librtld_db must provide a set of process control primitives that allow libthread_db and librtld_db to access memory and registers in the target process, to start and to stop the target process, and to look up symbols in the target process. See libc_db(3LIB). For information on librtld_db, refer to the Linker and Libraries Guide. Refer to the individual reference manual pages that describe these routines for a functional specification that clients of libthread_db and librtld_db can use to implement this required interface. The <proc_service.h> header lists the C declarations of these routines. FUNCTIONS
ps_pdmodel() Returns the data model of the target process. ps_pglobal_lookup() Looks up the symbol in the symbol table of the load object in the target process and returns its address. ps_pglobal_sym() Looks up the symbol in the symbol table of the load object in the target process and returns its symbol ta- ble entry. ps_pread() Copies size bytes from the target process to the controlling process. ps_pwrite() Copies size bytes from the controlling process to the target process. ps_pdread() Identical to ps_pread(). ps_pdwrite() Identical to ps_pwrite(). ps_ptread() Identical to ps_pread(). ps_ptwrite() Identical to ps_pwrite(). ps_pstop() Stops the target process. ps_pcontinue() Resumes target process. ps_lstop() Stops a single lightweight process ( LWP ) within the target process. ps_lcontinue() Resumes a single LWP within the target process. ps_lgetregs() Gets the general registers of the LWP. ps_lsetregs() Sets the general registers of the LWP. ps_lgetfpregs() Gets the LWP`s floating point register set. ps_lsetfpregs() Sets the LWP`s floating point register set. ps_pauxv() Returns a pointer to a read-only copy of the target process's auxiliary vector. ps_kill() Sends signal to target process. ps_lrolltoaddr() Rolls the LWP out of a critical section when the process is stopped. ps_plog() Logs a message. SPARC ps_lgetxregsize() Returns the size of the architecture-dependent extra state registers. ps_lgetxregs() Gets the extra state registers of the LWP. ps_lsetxregs() Sets the extra state registers of the LWP. x86 ps_lgetLDT() Reads the local descriptor table of the LWP.
