cr_open(3)						     Library Functions Manual							cr_open(3)

NAME
cr_open() - open crash dump for reading SYNOPSIS
DESCRIPTION
The library call opens a crash dump and passes back a crash dump descriptor. The path argument points to a path name naming a crash dump directory or file, and must not exceed bytes in length. The CRASH * to which crash_cb points is set to a crash dump descriptor, which can then be passed to the other functions to access the crash dump. flags is a bitmask of zero or more of the following flag values, which affect the operation of future calls to libcrash routines for this crash dump, except for cr_verify(3), which has its own flags parameter. The library will not attempt to verify checksums of files in the crash dump if this flag is set. The library will write messages to stderr during time-consuming operations (decompressions and checksums) if this flag is set. RETURN VALUE
Returns zero for success. Other possible return values are described in libcrash(5). EXAMPLES
The following call to opens crash dump contained in the directory and returns the crash dump descriptor For an example of reading the crash dump see the cr_read(3) manual entry. AUTHOR

NAME
cr_uncompress - uncompress a file in a crash dump SYNOPSIS
DESCRIPTION
The ensures that a file, part of a crash dump described by crash_cb, is uncompressed and matches its expected size and checksum (as com- puted by cksum(1)). This call is most often used to ensure the integrity of module files that are a part of the crash dump; see cr_info(3). pathname is the name of the file to uncompress. Supported compression methods include gzip(1), which appends a to the filename, and com- press(1), which appends Respectively, size and checksum are the expected size and checksum of the uncompressed file. Either validity check can be disabled by specifying zero for the corresponding parameter. RETURN VALUE
Returns zero for success. Other possible return values are described in libcrash(5). EXAMPLE
The following call to cr_uncompress(3) ensures that the kernel file is uncompressed and validated. AUTHOR
