DWARF_CHILD(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					    DWARF_CHILD(3)

NAME
dwarf_child, dwarf_offdie, dwarf_offdie_b, dwarf_siblingof, dwarf_siblingof_b -- retrieve DWARF Debugging Information Entry descriptors
LIBRARY
DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf)
SYNOPSIS
#include <libdwarf.h> int dwarf_child(Dwarf_Die die, Dwarf_Die *ret_die, Dwarf_Error *err); int dwarf_offdie(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Off offset, Dwarf_Die *ret_die, Dwarf_Error *err); int dwarf_offdie_b(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Off offset, Dwarf_Bool is_info, Dwarf_Die *ret_die, Dwarf_Error *err); int dwarf_siblingof(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Die die, Dwarf_Die *ret_die, Dwarf_Error *err); int dwarf_siblingof_b(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Die die, Dwarf_Die *ret_die, Dwarf_Bool is_info, Dwarf_Error *err);
DESCRIPTION
These functions are used to retrieve and traverse DWARF Debugging Information Entry (DIE) descriptors associated with a compilation unit. These descriptors are arranged in the form of a tree, traversable using ``child'' and ``sibling'' links; see dwarf(3) for more information. DWARF Debugging Information Entry descriptors are represented by the Dwarf_Die opaque type. Function dwarf_child() retrieves the child of descriptor denoted by argument die, and stores it in the location pointed to by argument ret_die. Function dwarf_siblingof() retrieves the sibling of the descriptor denoted by argument die, and stores it in the location pointed to by argu- ment ret_die. If argument die is NULL, the first debugging information entry descriptor for the current compilation unit will be returned. This function and function dwarf_child() may be used together to traverse the tree of debugging information entry descriptors for a compila- tion unit. Function dwarf_siblingof_b() is identical to the function dwarf_siblingof() except that it can retrieve the sibling descriptor from either the current compilation unit or type unit. If argument is_info is non-zero, the function behaves identically to function dwarf_siblingof(). If argument is_info is zero, the descriptor referred by argument die should be associated with a debugging information entry in the type unit. The function will store the sibling of the descriptor in the location pointed to by argument ret_die. If argument is_info is zero and argument die is NULL, the first debugging information entry descriptor for the current type unit will be returned. Function dwarf_offdie() retrieves the debugging information entry descriptor at global offset offset in the ``.debug_info'' section of the object associated with argument dbg. The returned descriptor is written to the location pointed to by argument ret_die. Function dwarf_offdie_b() is identical to the function dwarf_offdie() except that it can retrieve the debugging information entry descriptor at global offset offset from either of the ``.debug_info'' and ``.debug_types'' sections of the object associated with argument dbg. If argument is_info is non-zero, the function will retrieve the debugging information entry from the ``.debug_info'' section, otherwise the function will retrieve the debugging information entry from the ``.debug_types'' section. The returned descriptor is written to the location pointed to by argument ret_die. Memory Management The memory area used for the Dwarf_Die descriptor returned in argument ret_die is allocated by the DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf). Application code should use function dwarf_dealloc() with the allocation type DW_DLA_DIE to free the memory area when the Dwarf_Die descrip- tor is no longer needed.
RETURN VALUES
These functions return the following values: [DW_DLV_OK] The call succeeded. [DW_DLV_ERROR] The requested operation failed. Additional information about the error encountered will be recorded in argument err, if it is not NULL. [DW_DLV_NO_ENTRY] For functions dwarf_child(), dwarf_siblingof() and dwarf_siblingof_b(), the descriptor denoted by argument die did not have a child or sibling. For functions dwarf_offdie() and dwarf_offdie_b(), there was no debugging information entry at the offset specified by argument offset.
ERRORS
These functions may fail with the following errors: [DW_DLE_ARGUMENT] Arguments dbg, die or ret_die were NULL. [DW_DLE_DIE_NO_CU_CONTEXT] Argument dbg was not associated with a compilation unit. [DW_DLE_NO_ENTRY] The descriptor denoted by argument die had no child or sibling, or there was no DWARF debugging information entry at the offset specified by argument offset.
EXAMPLES
To retrieve the first DWARF Debugging Information Entry descriptor for the first compilation unit associated with a Dwarf_Debug instance, and to traverse all its children, use: Dwarf_Debug dbg; Dwarf_Die die, die0; Dwarf_Error de; ... allocate dbg using dwarf_init() etc ... if (dwarf_next_cu_header(dbg, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, &de) != DW_DLV_OK) errx(EXIT_FAILURE, "dwarf_next_cu_header: %s", dwarf_errmsg(de)); /* Get the first DIE for the current compilation unit. */ die = NULL; if (dwarf_siblingof(dbg, die, &die0, &de) != DW_DLV_OK) errx(EXIT_FAILURE, "dwarf_siblingof: %s", dwarf_errmsg(de)); /* Get the first child of this DIE. */ die = die0; if (dwarf_child(die, &die0, &de) != DW_DLV_OK) errx(EXIT_FAILURE, "dwarf_child: %s", dwarf_errmsg(de)); /* Get the rest of children. */ do { die = die0; if (dwarf_siblingof(dbg, die, &die0, &de) == DW_DLV_ERROR) errx(EXIT_FAILURE, "dwarf_siblingof: %s", dwarf_errmsg(de)); } while (die0 != NULL);
