#include <nlist.h> int nlist(const char *filename, struct nlist *nl); DESCRIPTION
The nlist() function retrieves name list entries from the symbol table of an executable file. (See a.out(5).) The argument nl is set to reference the beginning of the list. The list is preened of binary and invalid data; if an entry in the name list is valid, the n_type and n_value for the entry are copied into the list referenced by nl. No other data is copied. The last entry in the list is always NULL. RETURN VALUES
The number of invalid entries is returned if successful; otherwise, if the file filename does not exist or is not executable, the returned value is -1. SEE ALSO

NAME
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
kvm_nlist() 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 corre- sponding n_type and n_value fields are filled in. These fields are set to 0 if the symbol is not found. If kd was created by a call to kvm_open() with a NULL executable image name, kvm_nlist() will use /dev/ksyms to retrieve the kernel symbol table. RETURN VALUES
The kvm_nlist() function returns the number of invalid entries found. If the kernel symbol table was unreadable, -1 is returned. FILES
