dwarf_add_weakname(3) [freebsd man page]

DWARF_ADD_WEAKNAME(3)					   BSD Library Functions Manual 				     DWARF_ADD_WEAKNAME(3)

NAME
dwarf_add_weakname -- add information about a weak object to a DWARF producer instance LIBRARY
DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf) SYNOPSIS
#include <libdwarf.h> Dwarf_Unsigned dwarf_add_weakname(Dwarf_P_Debug dbg, Dwarf_P_Die die, char *name, Dwarf_Error *err); DESCRIPTION
Function dwarf_add_weakname() adds information about a weak object to a DWARF producer instance. Argument dbg should reference a DWARF producer instance allocated using dwarf_producer_init(3) or dwarf_producer_init_b(3). Argument die specifies the debugging information entry associated with the weak object. Argument name should point to a NUL-terminated string containing the name of the weak object. If argument err is not NULL, it will be used to store error information in case of an error. RETURN VALUES
On success, function dwarf_add_weakname() returns a non-zero value. In case of an error, function dwarf_add_weakname() returns 0 and sets the argument err. ERRORS
Function dwarf_add_weakname() can fail with: [DW_DLE_ARGUMENT] One of the arguments dbg, die or name was NULL. [DW_DLE_MEMORY] An out of memory condition was encountered during the execution of the function. SEE ALSO

DWARF_ADD_AT_SIGNED_CONST(3)				   BSD Library Functions Manual 			      DWARF_ADD_AT_SIGNED_CONST(3)

NAME
dwarf_add_AT_signed_const, dwarf_add_AT_unsigned_const -- create and attach constant class attributes LIBRARY
DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf) SYNOPSIS
#include <libdwarf.h> Dwarf_P_Attribute dwarf_add_AT_signed_const(Dwarf_P_Debug dbg, Dwarf_P_Die die, Dwarf_Half attr, Dwarf_Signed value, Dwarf_Error *err); Dwarf_P_Attribute dwarf_add_AT_unsigned_const(Dwarf_P_Debug dbg, Dwarf_P_Die die, Dwarf_Half attr, Dwarf_Unsigned value, Dwarf_Error *err); DESCRIPTION
These functions create attribute descriptors belonging to the 'constant' class and attach them to the debugging information entry referenced by argument die. Argument dbg should reference a DWARF producer instance allocated using dwarf_producer_init(3) or dwarf_producer_init_b(3). Argument die should reference a debugging information entry allocated using dwarf_new_die(3). Argument attr specifies the attribute code of the created attribute descriptor. Function dwarf_add_AT_signed_const() creates an attribute descriptor with the signed value specified in argument value. Function dwarf_add_AT_unsigned_const() creates an attribute descriptor with the unsigned value specified in argument value. The attribute created by these function will have one of the DWARF forms DW_FORM_data1, DW_FORM_data2, DW_FORM_data4 or DW_FORM_data8, depending on the size of the value specified in argument value. If argument err is not NULL, it will be used by these functions to store error information in case of an error. RETURN VALUES
On success, these functions return the created attribute descriptor. In case of an error, these functions return DW_DLV_BADADDR and set the argument err. ERRORS
These functions can fail with: [DW_DLE_ARGUMENT] Either of the arguments dbg or die was NULL. [DW_DLE_MEMORY] An out of memory condition was encountered during execution. SEE ALSO
dwarf(3), dwarf_add_AT_const_value_signedint(3), dwarf_add_AT_const_value_unsignedint(3), dwarf_add_AT_dataref(3), dwarf_add_AT_ref_address(3), dwarf_add_AT_targ_address_b(3), dwarf_new_die(3), dwarf_producer_init(3), dwarf_producer_init_b(3) BSD
