NAME

       unw_get_proc_name -- get name of current procedure

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libunwind.h>

       int unw_get_proc_name(unw_cursor_t *cp, char *bufp, size_t len, unw_word_t *offp);

DESCRIPTION

       The  unw_get_proc_name()  routine returns the name of the procedure that created the stack
       frame identified by argument cp.  The bufp argument is a pointer  to  a  character  buffer
       that  is at least len bytes long. This buffer is used to return the name of the procedure.
       The offp argument is a pointer to a word that is used to return  the  byte-offset  of  the
       instruction-pointer  saved  in  the stack frame identified by cp, relative to the start of
       the procedure. For example, if procedure foo() starts at address 0x40003000, then invoking
       unw_get_proc_name() on a stack frame with an instruction-pointer value of 0x40003080 would
       return a value of 0x80 in the word pointed to by offp (assuming the procedure is at  least
       0x80 bytes long).

       Note  that  on  some  platforms  there is no reliable way to distinguish between procedure
       names and ordinary labels. Furthermore, if symbol information has  been  stripped  from  a
       program, procedure names may be completely unavailable or may be limited to those exported
       via a dynamic symbol table. In such cases, unw_get_proc_name() may return the  name  of  a
       label  or  a  preceeding (nearby) procedure.  However, the offset returned through offp is
       always relative to the returned name, which  ensures  that  the  value  (address)  of  the
       returned  name plus the returned offset will always be equal to the instruction-pointer of
       the stack frame identified by cp.

RETURN VALUE

       On successful completion, unw_get_proc_name() returns 0.  Otherwise the negative value  of
       one of the error-codes below is returned.

THREAD AND SIGNAL SAFETY

       unw_get_proc_name()  is  thread-safe.  If  cursor  cp  is in the local address-space, this
       routine is also safe to use from a signal handler.

ERRORS

       UNW_EUNSPEC
               An unspecified error occurred.

       UNW_ENOINFO
               Libunwind was unable to determine the name of the procedure.

       UNW_ENOMEM
               The procedure name is too long to fit in the buffer provided. A truncated  version
              of the name has been returned.

       In  addition,  unw_get_proc_name()  may  return  any  error  returned  by the access_mem()
       call-back (see unw_create_addr_space(3)).
