PARAMETERS

Specifies an object handle, as returned by the st_obj_open function. Specifies a procedure handle, as returned by a function such as st_obj_proc_start. Specifies an address to which st_is_alternate_entry returns a Boolean value of TRUE if the specified procedure is an alternate entry or a nested routine. Specifies an address to which st_proc_addr returns the starting address of the procedure as it would reside in memory when the object is executing. Specifies an address to which st_proc_sym returns the symbol handle for the specified procedure. Specifies an address to which st_proc_name returns the null-terminated string of the procedure name. Specifies an address to which st_proc_to_file returns the handle of the file that contains the specified procedure, or a file handle that st_foreach_proc uses to locate procedures for which to run the specified routine. Specifies an address to which st_proc_start_line writes the starting line number for the specified procedure. This number identifies the line in the source file at which the procedure is defined. Specifies an address to which st_proc_end_line writes the ending line number for the specified procedure. This number identifies the line in the source file at which the procedure ends. If the specified procedure is an alternate entry or a nested procedure, st_outer_proc_end_line returns the ending line of the procedure containing the specified procedure to this location. Specifies a line number that st_check_proc_line_range is to determine is within the range of lines within the specified procedure. Specifies an address to which st_check_proc_line_range returns a procedure handle if the specified line number is within the range of lines in the specified procedure, or -1 if it is not. Specifies an address to which st_proc_sorted_start the handle of the first procedure in the sorted procedure table created by its implicit call of (or prior explicit call to) st_proc_sort. For the st_proc_sorted_next function, specifies an address to which the function returns the procedure that follows proc in the sorted procedure table. For the st_foreach_proc, st_foreach_obj_proc), and st_foreach_obj_proc_sorted functions, specifies an address to receive the return value from the specified routine. The called routine must be written to return 0 to terminate its execution within the procedure list, and ST_FOREACH_CONTINUE to continue to the next procedure. Specifies a routine to be called for each procedure in the specified file (st_foreach_proc), object (st_foreach_obj_proc), or sorted procedure table (st_foreach_obj_proc_sorted). Specifies data to be input to or output from the routine to be called for each object in the specified file (st_foreach_proc), object (st_foreach_obj_proc), or sorted procedure table (st_foreach_obj_proc_sorted).  

DESCRIPTION

These functions return information about a procedure or perform operations on the procedures in an object or file.

The st_is_alternate_entry function determines whether the specified procedure is an alternate entry or nested routine.

The st_proc_addr function returns the starting address of the procedure as it would reside in memory when the object is executing.

The st_proc_sym function returns the symbol handle for the specified procedure.

The st_proc_name function returns the null-terminated string of the procedure name. Because the returned procedure name is for read-access only, the calling program should make any modifications to a copy of this string.

The st_proc_to_file function returns the handle of the file that contains the specified procedure.

The st_proc_start_line and st_proc_end_line functions return the numbers of the line in the source file at which the procedure is defined and the line at which the procedure ends, respectively. The st_outer_proc_end_line function returns the ending line number of the procedure that contains the specified procedure, and is used for procedures that are alternate entries or nested procedures. If the specified procedure is neither an alternate entry or a nested procedure, st_outer_proc_end_line returns the line at which the specified procedure ends.

The st_check_proc_line_range function determines whether the specified line number is within the range of lines in the specified procedure. If the line number is within range, the function returns the procedure handle. If not, it returns -1 to the location to which oproc points. Use st_check_proc_line_range when calling st_foreach_proc, st_foreach_obj_proc, st_foreach_obj_proc_sorted to operate on all the procedures in a given file, object, or sorted procedure list. The line parameter is defined as an unsigned long to allow it to be used for this purpose.

The st_proc_sort function creates a table of procedures sorted by increasing address order. It includes all procedures in the specified object in the sorted procedure table. The sorted procedure table enables faster search operations on the procedure addresses by other routines. Any libst routines that require a sorted procedure table implicitly call st_proc_sort if the table does not already exist. The st_proc_sorted_start function returns the handle of the first procedure in the sorted procedure table. The st_proc_sorted_next function returns the handle of the procedure that follows proc in the sorted procedure table.

Note

Use the st_obj_proc_start and st_obj_proc_next functions to access procedures in the order that they appear in the object, that is, in their link order. Use the st_proc_sorted_start and st_proc_sorted_next functions to access procedures in ascending address order.

Note that some objects may have multiple procedures at the same address.

Use st_obj_proc_count to determine the number of procedures in an object or sorted procedure table.

The st_foreach_proc, st_foreach_obj_proc, and st_foreach_obj_proc_sorted functions provide a means of calling a routine once for each procedure in the specified file, object, or sorted procedure table. You must write the called routine so that it returns 0 to terminate its execution within the procedure list, and ST_FOREACH_CONTINUE to continue to the next procedure.  

RETURN VALUES

All functions indicate success by returning a value of 0 (zero). A positive return value is an errno value from a system call. A negative return value is a library error or informational code. The library codes are documented in st.h.

Return parameters are set to 0 or -1 when an error occurs. Address parameters are set to 0 while file and procedure handles are set to -1. An exception to this is if a NULL pointer for the object or other return parameter is input. In these cases, the return parameters will be unchanged. A non-zero return status is the recommended method for detecting an error return from a libst function.

The st_foreach_proc, st_foreach_obj_proc, and st_foreach_obj_proc_sorted functions return ST_E_NULL_ARGUMENT if a null object handle or routine pointer are supplied. It returns a value of 0 (zero) when the called routine returns 0 to it. Otherwise, it returns ST_OBJ_END to indicate that it has reached the end of the procedures without a successful return from the called routine.
