DWARF_GET_LOCLIST_ENTRY(3)                            Library Functions Manual

NAME
     dwarf_get_loclist_entry -- retrieve DWARF location list entry

LIBRARY
     DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <libdwarf.h>

     int
     dwarf_get_loclist_entry(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Dwarf_Unsigned offset,
         Dwarf_Addr *hipc, Dwarf_Addr *lopc, Dwarf_Ptr *data,
         Dwarf_Unsigned *entry_len, Dwarf_Unsigned *next_entry,
         Dwarf_Error *err);

DESCRIPTION
     Function dwarf_get_loclist_entry() retrieves a location list entry from
     the DWARF section ``.debug_loc''.

     Argument dbg should reference a DWARF debug context allocated using
     dwarf_init(3).

     Argument offset is an offset, relative to the ``.debug_loc'' section, to
     the start of the desired location list entry.

     Argument hipc should point to a location which will hold the offset,
     relative to the base address of the location list entry, of the highest
     program counter value for the entry.

     Argument lowpc should point to a location which will hold the offset,
     relative to the base address of the location list entry, of the lowest
     program counter value for the entry.

     Argument data should point to a location which will be set to a pointer
     to the location list data.

     Argument entry_len should point to a location which will hold the length
     in bytes of the location list data returned in argument data.

     Argument next_entry should point to a location which will hold the offset
     of the next location list entry.

     If argument err is not NULL, it will be used to store error information
     in case of an error.

RETURN VALUES
     Function dwarf_get_loclist_entry() returns DW_DLV_OK when it succeeds.
     It returns DW_DLV_NO_ENTRY if there is no location list at the specified
     offset offset.  In case of an error, it returns DW_DLV_ERROR and sets the
     argument err.

ERRORS
     Function dwarf_get_loclist_entry() can fail with:

     [DW_DLE_ARGUMENT]       One of the arguments dbg, hipc, lopc, data,
                             entry_len or next_entry was NULL.

     [DW_DLE_NO_ENTRY]       There is no location list at the specified offset
                             offset.

EXAMPLE
     To iterate through all the location list entries in the ``.debug_loc''
     section, use:

           Dwarf_Debug dbg;
           Dwarf_Unsigned off, len, next;
           Dwarf_Addr hipc, lopc;
           Dwarf_Ptr data;
           Dwarf_Error de;
           int ret;

           off = 0;
           while ((ret = dwarf_get_loclist_entry(dbg, off, &hipc, &lopc, &data,
               &len, &next, &de)) == DW_DLV_OK) {
                   /* ... use loclist entry ... */
                   off = next;
           }
           if (ret == DW_DLV_ERROR)
                   warnx("dwarf_get_loclist_entry failed: %s", dwarf_errmsg(de));
