MACH-CMD(3) MACH-CMD(3) NAME attachargs, attachcore, attachdynamic, attachproc, proctextfile - debugging processes and core files SYNOPSIS #include <u.h> #include <libc.h> #include <mach.h> int attachcore(Fhdr *hdr) int attachproc(int pid) int attachdynamic(void) char* proctextfile(int pid) int attachargs(int argc, char **argv, int omode) extern Fhdr* symhdr; extern char* symfil; extern Map* symmap; extern Fhdr* fhdrlist; extern Fhdr* corhdr; extern char* corfil; extern Map* cormap; extern int corpid; extern Regs* correg; DESCRIPTION These routines provide access to the objects a typical debugger manipulates: an executable binary, some number of shared libraries, a memory image in the form of a core dump or active process, and a register set. The maintained state is: symhdr The file header for the main binary. symfil The file name of the main binary. symmap The memory map of the main binary. fhdrlist A linked list (via the Fhdr.next fields) of all MACH-CMD(3) MACH-CMD(3) currently open headers (see symopen in mach-symbol(3)). When dynamically linked objects have been attached, they are present in this linked list, and therefore included in searches by indexsym, lookupsym, and findsym (see mach-symbol(3)). corhdr The file header for the core dump, if any. corfil The file name of the core dump, if any. cormap The memory map of the core dump or attached process. corpid The process id of the attached process, if any. correg The register set of the core dump or attached process. If these fields are not valid, they are zeroed. Attachcore and attachproc attach to an opened core file or an executing process. They set corhdr, corfil, cormap, corpid, and correg. Proctextfile returns the name of the main binary for the process with id pid. Attachdynamic requires that the memory image already be attached. It reads the dynamic linker's internal run-time data structures and then opens all the dynamic objects that are currently loaded. Attachargs uses all of these functions while parsing an argument vector as would be passed to a debugger like db(1) or acid(1). It expects a list of executable files, core dump files, or process ids, given in any order. If extra argu- ments are given (for example, more than one executable, or both a core dump and a process id), they are ignored and diagnostics are printed to standard error. If arguments are missing (for example, the process id is given without an executable file), attachargs fills them in as best it can.
