NLIST(3)										 NLIST(3)

       nlist - get entries from name list

       #include <a.out.h>
       nlist(filename, nl)
       char *filename;
       struct nlist nl[ ];

       Nlist  examines the name list in the given executable output file and selectively extracts
       a list of values.  The name list consists of an	array  of  structures  containing  names,
       types and values.  The list is terminated with a null name.  Each name is looked up in the
       name list of the file.  If the name is found, the type and value of the name are  inserted
       in  the	next  two  fields.   If  the  name  is not found, both entries are set to 0.  See
       a.out(5) for the structure declaration.

       This subroutine is useful for examining the system name list kept in the file  /unix.   In
       this way programs can obtain system addresses that are up to date.


       All  type  entries  are	set  to  0  if	the  file cannot be found or if it is not a valid
