The td_ta_sync_iter(), td_ta_thr_iter(), and td_ta_tsd_iter() functions are iterator functions that when given a target process handle as an argument, return sets of handles for objects associated with the target process. The method is to call back a client-provided function once for each associated object, passing back a handle as well as the client-provided pointer cb_data_p. This enables a client to easily build a linked list of the associated objects. If the client-provided function returns non-zero, the iteration terminates, even if there are members remaining in the set of associated objects.

The td_ta_sync_iter() function returns handles of synchronization objects (mutexes, readers-writer locks, semaphores, and condition variables) associated with a process. Some synchronization objects might not be known to libc_db and will not be returned. If the process has initialized the synchronization object (by calling mutex_init(3C), for example) or a thread in the process has called a synchronization primitive (mutex_lock(), for example) using this object after td_ta_new(3C_DB) was called to attach to the process and td_ta_sync_tracking_enable() was called to enable synchronization object tracking, then a handle for the synchronization object will be passed to the callback function. See td_sync_get_info(3C_DB) for operations that can be performed on synchronization object handles.

The td_ta_thr_iter() function returns handles for threads that are part of the target process. For td_ta_thr_iter(), the caller specifies several criteria to select a subset of threads for which the callback function should be called. Any of these selection criteria may be wild-carded. If all of them are wild-carded, then handles for all threads in the process will be returned.

The selection parameters and corresponding wild-card values are:


Select only threads whose state matches state. See td_thr_get_info(3C_DB) for a list of thread states.


Select only threads for which the priority is at least ti_pri.

ti_sigmask_p (TD_SIGNO_MASK):

Select only threads whose signal mask exactly matches *ti_sigmask_p.

ti_user_flags (TD_THR_ANY_USER_FLAGS):

Select only threads whose user flags (specified at thread creation time) exactly match ti_user_flags.

The td_ta_tsd_iter() function returns the thread-specific data keys in use by the current process. Thread-specific data for a particular thread and key can be obtained by calling td_thr_tsd(3C_DB).  


TD_OK The call completed successfully.

TD_BADTA An invalid process handle was passed.

TD_DBERR A call to one of the imported interface routines failed.

TD_ERR The call did not complete successfully.
