CURPROC(9) BSD Kernel Developer's Manual CURPROC(9)
curproc, curcpu, curlwp -- current process, processor, and LWP
struct cpu_info *
struct proc *
struct lwp *
The following macros can be used to retrieve the current processor, process, and light-
weight process (LWP), respectively:
1. The machine-dependent curcpu() macro returns a pointer to a cpu_info structure
containing information of the CPU that this thread is running on.
2. The machine-independent curproc() macro refers to a pointer to the process cur-
rently running on this CPU.
3. The curlwp() macro expands to a pointer to lwp structure, containing information
about the current LWP. This macro is machine-independent, but machine-dependent
<machine/cpu.h> may redefine it.
