NLIST(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 			 NLIST(3)

NAME
     nlist -- retrieve symbol table name list from an executable file

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #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
     a.out(5)

HISTORY
     A nlist() function appeared in Version 6 AT&T UNIX.
