__BUILTIN_RETURN_ADDRESS(3) Library Functions Manual NAME __builtin_return_address - the return address of a function SYNOPSIS void * __builtin_return_address(unsigned int level); void * __builtin_frame_address(unsigned int level); DESCRIPTION The __builtin_return_address() is a GNU extension for obtaining the return address of the current function or one of the callers of the current function. The parameter level specifies the number of frames that should be scanned up in the call stack. A value 0 returns the address of the current function, a value 1 requests the address of the caller of the current function, a value 2 asks for the address of the caller's caller, and so forth. If the top of the call stack has been reached, the function will return 0. Note also that on some architectures it is only possible to determine the address of the current function. In such cases a value 0 is returned. Thus, it is usually safe to only use the value 0 for level. The __builtin_frame_address() behaves similarly, but returns the address of the function frame rather than the return address of the function.
