KVM_NLIST(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					      KVM_NLIST(3)

kvm_nlist -- retrieve symbol table names from a kernel image LIBRARY
Kernel Data Access Library (libkvm, -lkvm) SYNOPSIS
#include <kvm.h> #include <nlist.h> int kvm_nlist(kvm_t *kd, struct nlist *nl); DESCRIPTION
The kvm_nlist() function retrieves the symbol table entries indicated by the name list argument nl. This argument points to an array of nlist structures, terminated by an entry whose n_name field is NULL (see nlist(3)). Each symbol is looked up using the n_name field, and if found, the corresponding n_type and n_value fields are filled in. These fields are set to 0 if the symbol is not found. The kldsym(2) system call is used to locate the symbol. This is a less than perfect emulation of the nlist values but has the advantage of being aware of kernel modules and is reasonably fast. RETURN VALUES
The kvm_nlist() function returns the number of invalid entries found. If the kernel symbol table was unreadable, -1 is returned. SEE ALSO

kvm_nlist - get entries from kernel symbol table SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lkvm [ library...] #include <kvm.h> #include <nlist.h> int kvm_nlist(kvm_t *kd, struct nlist *nl); DESCRIPTION
The kvm_nlist() function examines the symbol table from the kernel image identified by kd (see kvm_open(3KVM)) and selectively extracts a list of values and puts them in the array of nlist structures pointed to by nl. The name list pointed to by nl consists of an array of structures containing names, types and values. The n_name field of each such structure is taken to be a pointer to a character string rep- resenting a symbol name. The list is terminated by an entry with a null pointer (or a pointer to a null string) in the n_name field. For each entry in nl, if the named symbol is present in the kernel symbol table, its value and type are placed in the n_value and n_type fields. If a symbol cannot be located, the corresponding n_type field of nl is set to 0. RETURN VALUES
The kvm_nlist() functions returns the value of nlist(3UCB) or nlist(3ELF), depending on the library used. ATTRIBUTES
