cr_verify - verify integrity of crash dump SYNOPSIS
uncompresses and verifies the sizes and checksums of every file in the crash dump identified by crash_cb. flags is a bitmask of zero or more of the following flag values: will not attempt to verify checksums of files in the crash dump if this flag is set. Only sizes will be verified. will write messages to stderr during time-consuming operations (decompressions and checksums) if this flag is set. will write messages to stderr describing any validation problems that are encountered. If this flag is set, should not be called when returns; repeated error messages would result. RETURN VALUE
Returns zero for success. Other possible return values are described in libcrash(5). EXAMPLES
The following call to cr_verify(3) verifies the integrity of the dump. WARNINGS

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
