DWARF_NEW_EXPR(3)					   BSD Library Functions Manual 					 DWARF_NEW_EXPR(3)

NAME
dwarf_new_expr -- create a location expression descriptor LIBRARY
DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf) SYNOPSIS
#include <libdwarf.h> Dwarf_P_Expr dwarf_new_expr(Dwarf_P_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Error *err); DESCRIPTION
Function dwarf_new_expr() allocates a DWARF location expression descriptor used to build up a location expression stream. The application can use the functions dwarf_add_expr_gen(3) and dwarf_add_expr_addr_b(3) to add location expression operators to the created descriptor. When done, the application can call the function dwarf_expr_into_block(3) to retrieve the generated byte stream for the location expression, or call the function dwarf_add_AT_location_expr(3) to create an attribute with the location expression stream as its value. Argument dbg should reference a DWARF producer instance allocated using dwarf_producer_init(3) or dwarf_producer_init_b(3). 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_new_expr() returns the created location expression descriptor. In case of an error, function dwarf_new_expr() returns DW_DLV_BADADDR and sets the argument err. ERRORS
Function dwarf_new_expr() can fail with: [DW_DLE_ARGUMENT] Argument dbg was NULL. [DW_DLE_MEMORY] An out of memory condition was encountered during the execution of the function. EXAMPLES
To create a location expression descriptor, add location expression operators to it and to retrieve the generated byte stream, use: Dwarf_P_Debug dbg; Dwarf_Error de; Dwarf_P_Expr pe; Dwarf_Addr buf; Dwarf_Unsigned len; /* ...Assume that `dbg' refers to a DWARF producer instance... */ if ((pe = dwarf_new_expr(dbg, &de)) == DW_DLV_BADADDR) { warnx("dwarf_new_expr failed: %s", dwarf_errmsg(-1)); return; } if (dwarf_add_expr_gen(pe, DW_OP_regx, 55, 0, &de) == DW_DLV_NOCOUNT) { warnx("dwarf_add_expr_gen failed: %s", dwarf_errmsg(-1)); return; } if ((buf = dwarf_expr_into_block(pe, &len, &de)) == DW_DLV_BADADDR) { warnx("dwarf_expr_into_block failed: %s", dwarf_errmsg(-1)); return; } SEE ALSO

DWARF_ADD_AT_REF_ADDRESS(3)				   BSD Library Functions Manual 			       DWARF_ADD_AT_REF_ADDRESS(3)

NAME
dwarf_add_AT_ref_address -- create a reference class attribute descriptor LIBRARY
DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf) SYNOPSIS
#include <libdwarf.h> Dwarf_P_Attribute dwarf_add_AT_ref_address(Dwarf_P_Debug dbg, Dwarf_P_Die die, Dwarf_Half attr, Dwarf_Unsigned pc_value, Dwarf_Unsigned sym_index, Dwarf_Error *err); DESCRIPTION
Function dwarf_add_AT_ref_address() creates a 'reference' class attribute descriptor containing a relocatable address value. The created attribute will use DWARF form DW_FORM_ref_addr. 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. Argument pc_value contains a relocatable address which will become the value of the created attribute. Argument sym_index should specify the ELF symbol index of the symbol to be used when relocating the address value. 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_AT_ref_address() returns the created attribute descriptor. In case of an error, function dwarf_add_AT_ref_address() returns DW_DLV_BADADDR and sets the argument err. ERRORS
Function dwarf_add_AT_ref_address() 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
