DWARF_GET_PUBTYPES(3)					   BSD Library Functions Manual 				     DWARF_GET_PUBTYPES(3)

NAME
dwarf_get_pubtypes, dwarf_pubtype_cu_offset, dwarf_pubtype_die_offset, dwarf_pubtype_name_offsets, dwarf_pubtypename -- retrieve information about user-defined types LIBRARY
DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf) SYNOPSIS
#include <libdwarf.h> int dwarf_get_pubtypes(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Type **types, Dwarf_Signed *ntypes, Dwarf_Error *err); int dwarf_pubtype_cu_offset(Dwarf_Type type, Dwarf_Off *cu_offset, Dwarf_Error *err); int dwarf_pubtype_die_offset(Dwarf_Type type, Dwarf_Off *die_offset, Dwarf_Error *err); int dwarf_pubtype_name_offsets(Dwarf_Type type, char **name, Dwarf_Off *die_offset, Dwarf_Off *cu_die_offset, Dwarf_Error *err); int dwarf_pubtypename(Dwarf_Type type, char **name, Dwarf_Error *err); DESCRIPTION
These functions retrieve information about file-scope, user-defined types recorded in lookup tables in the ``.debug_pubtypes'' DWARF section. Information about these types is returned using opaque descriptors of type Dwarf_Type. Applications need to use the functions described below to retrieve the name and offset information contained in these descriptors. Function dwarf_get_pubtypes() retrieves descriptors for all the user-defined types associated with the DWARF debug context specified by argu- ment dbg. The argument types should point to a location that will be set to a pointer to an array of Dwarf_Type descriptors. The argument ntypes should point to a location that will be set to the number of descriptors returned. Function dwarf_pubtype_cu_offset() returns the offset, relative to the ``.debug_info'' section, of the compilation unit that contains the debugging information entry associated with the argument type. Argument cu_offset should point to a location that will hold the returned offset. Function dwarf_pubtype_die_offset() retrieves the offset, relative to the ``.debug_info'' section, of the debugging information entry associ- ated with the argument type, and stores it into the location pointed to by the argument die_offset. Function dwarf_pubtype_name_offsets() retrieves the name and offsets for the debugging information entry for argument type. Argument name should point to a location which will be set to a pointer to a NUL-terminated string containing the name of the associated debugging informa- tion entry. Argument die_offset should point to a location which will be set to the offset, relative to the ``.debug_info'' section, of the associated debugging information entry. Argument cu_die_offset should point to a location which will be set to the offset, relative to the ``.debug_info'' section, of the first debugging information entry in the compilation unit associated with argument type. Function dwarf_pubtypename() sets the location pointed to by argument name to a pointer to a NUL-terminated string holding the name of the debugging information entry associated with the argument type. Memory Management The memory area used for the array of Dwarf_Type descriptors returned in argument types by function dwarf_get_pubtypes() is owned by the DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf). Application code should not attempt to directly free this pointer. Portable code should instead use the function dwarf_types_dealloc(3) to indicate that the memory area may be freed. The memory area used for the string returned in the name argument to functions dwarf_pubtype_name_offsets() and dwarf_pubtypename() is owned by the DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf). Portable code should indicate that the memory area can be freed using the dwarf_dealloc(3) function. Error Returns If argument err is not NULL, these functions will use it to store error information, in case of an error. RETURN VALUES
On success, these functions returns DW_DLV_OK. In case of an error, they return DW_DLV_ERROR and set the argument err. EXAMPLES
To retrieve the list of file scope user-defined types and print their names, use: Dwarf_Debug dbg; Dwarf_Signed ntypes; Dwarf_Type *types; Dwarf_Error err; int n, result; char *typename; /* Initialize dbg etc. */; result = dwarf_get_pubtypes(dbg, &types, &ntypes, &err); if (result != DW_DLV_OK) /* Handle the error. */ ; /* Iterate over the returned array of descriptors. */ for (n = 0; n < ntypes; n++) { result = dwarf_pubtypename(types[n], &typename, &err); if (result != DW_DLV_OK) /* Handle the error. */ ; printf("%s ", typename); } /* Deallocate the returned array. */ dwarf_types_dealloc(dbg, types, ntypes); ERRORS
These functions may fail with the following errors: [DW_DLE_ARGUMENT] One of the arguments cu_die_offset, cu_offset, dbg, die_offset, type, types, name, or ntypes was NULL. [DW_DLE_NO_ENTRY] The DWARF debugging context referenced by argument dbg did not contain information about user-defined types. SEE ALSO
