DWARF_SET_FRAME_CFA_VALUE(3)				   BSD Library Functions Manual 			      DWARF_SET_FRAME_CFA_VALUE(3)

NAME
dwarf_set_frame_cfa_value, dwarf_set_frame_rule_initial_value, dwarf_set_frame_rule_table_size, dwarf_set_frame_same_value, dwarf_set_frame_undefined_value -- set internal register rule table parameters LIBRARY
DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf) SYNOPSIS
#include <libdwarf.h> Dwarf_Half dwarf_set_frame_cfa_value(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Half value); Dwarf_Half dwarf_set_frame_rule_initial_value(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Half value); Dwarf_Half dwarf_set_frame_rule_table_size(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Half value); Dwarf_Half dwarf_set_frame_same_value(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Half value); Dwarf_Half dwarf_set_frame_undefined_value(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Half value); DESCRIPTION
These functions set the parameters of the internal register rule table. Argument dbg should reference a DWARF debug context allocated using dwarf_init(3). Argument value should hold the parameter value to set. Function dwarf_set_frame_cfa_value() sets the column number for the CFA register rule in the internal register rule table. The constant DW_FRAME_CFA_COL is the default CFA register column number for DWARF2-only interfaces, and the constant DW_FRAME_CFA_COL3 is the default CFA column number for DWARF3-compatible interfaces. Function dwarf_set_frame_rule_initial_value() sets the initial value of the register rules in the internal register rule table. The default initial value is the constant DW_FRAME_REG_INITIAL_VALUE, defined in the header file <libdwarf.h>. Function dwarf_set_frame_rule_table_size() sets the maxmium number of columns of the internal register rule table. Argument value should be at least as large as the number of real registers in the ABI. Function dwarf_set_frame_same_value() sets the register number representing the ``same value'' register rule. The default register number for the ``same value'' rule is the constant DW_FRAME_SAME_VAL, defined in the header file <libdwarf.h>. Function dwarf_set_frame_undefined_value() sets the register number representing the ``undefined'' register rule. The default register num- ber for the ``undefined'' rule is the constant DW_FRAME_UNDEFINED_VAL, defined in the header file <libdwarf.h>. RETURN VALUES
These functions return the previous value of the parameter being set. SEE ALSO

DWARF_GET_FDE_INFO_FOR_ALL_REGS3(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		       DWARF_GET_FDE_INFO_FOR_ALL_REGS3(3)

NAME
dwarf_get_fde_info_for_all_regs3 -- retrieve register rule row LIBRARY
DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf) SYNOPSIS
#include <libdwarf.h> int dwarf_get_fde_info_for_all_regs3(Dwarf_Fde fde, Dwarf_Addr pc, Dwarf_Regtable3 *reg_table, Dwarf_Addr *row_pc, Dwarf_Error *err); DESCRIPTION
Function dwarf_get_fde_info_for_all_regs3() retrieves a row from the register rule table associated with the given FDE descriptor. Argument fde should reference a valid DWARF FDE descriptor. Argument pc should hold the program counter address to be used to locate the desired table row. Argument reg_table should point to a Dwarf_Regtable3 descriptor which will hold the returned table row of register rules. The Dwarf_Regtable3 descriptor is defined in the header file <libdwarf.h>: typedef struct { Dwarf_Small dw_offset_relevant; Dwarf_Small dw_value_type; Dwarf_Half dw_regnum; Dwarf_Unsigned dw_offset_or_block_len; Dwarf_Ptr dw_block_ptr; } Dwarf_Regtable_Entry3; typedef struct { Dwarf_Regtable_Entry3 rt3_cfa_rule; Dwarf_Half rt3_reg_table_size; Dwarf_Regtable_Entry3 *rt3_rules; } Dwarf_Regtable3; The rt3_reg_table_size field specifies the maximum number of register rule columns to be returned, and should be set by the application before calling the function. The rt3_rules field should point to a memory arena allocated by the application with space for at least rt3_reg_table_size descriptors of type Dwarf_Regtable_Entry3. On a successful execution of this function, the rt3_cfa_rule field will be set to the CFA register rule associated with the table row, and the rt3_rules array will hold the returned register rules contained in the table row. For each register rule descriptor returned, the dw_offset_relevant field will be set to 1 if the register rule has a offset value, the dw_value_type field will be set to the type code of the register rule and the dw_regnum field will be set to the register number associated with the register rule. If the register rule is of type DW_EXPR_OFFSET or DW_EXPR_VAL_OFFSET, the dw_offset_or_block_len field will be set to the offset value associated with the register rule. If the type is DW_EXPR_EXPRESSION or DW_EXPR_VAL_EXPRESSION, the dw_offset_or_block_len field will be set to the length in bytes of the DWARF expression block associated with the register rule. The dw_block_ptr field will be set to a pointer to the content of the DWARF expression block associated with the register rule. Argument row_pc should point to a location which will be set to the lowest program counter address associated with the table row. If argument err is not NULL, it will be used to store error information in case of an error. RETURN VALUES
Function dwarf_get_fde_info_for_all_regs3() returns DW_DLV_OK when it succeeds. In case of an error, it returns DW_DLV_ERROR and sets the argument err. ERRORS
Function dwarf_get_fde_info_for_all_regs3() can fail with: [DW_DLE_ARGUMENT] One of the arguments fde, reg_table or row_pc was NULL. [DW_DLE_PC_NOT_IN_FDE_RANGE] The program counter value provided in argument pc did not fall in the range covered by argument fde. SEE ALSO
