NAME [Toc] [Back]
cr_open() - open crash dump for reading
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
int cr_open(const char *path, CRASH **crash_cb, int flags);
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
The cr_open() library call opens a crash dump and passes back a crash
The path argument points to a path name naming a crash dump directory
or file, and must not exceed PATH_MAX bytes in length.
The CRASH * to which crash_cb points is set to a crash dump
descriptor, which can then be passed to the other cr_*() functions to
access the crash dump.
flags is a bitmask of zero or more of the following flag values, which
affect the operation of future calls to libcrash routines for this
crash dump, except for cr_verify(3), which has its own flags
CR_NOCHECKSUM The library will not attempt to verify checksums
of files in the crash dump if this flag is set.
CR_DELAYMSGS The library will write messages to stderr during
time-consuming operations (decompressions and
checksums) if this flag is set.
RETURN VALUE [Toc] [Back]
Returns zero for success. Other possible return values are described
EXAMPLES [Toc] [Back]
The following call to cr_open() opens crash dump contained in the
directory /var/adm/crash/core.0 and returns the crash dump descriptor
crash_cb. For an example of reading the crash dump
/var/adm/crash/core.0, see the cr_read(3) manual entry.
ret = cr_open ("/var/adm/crash/core.0", &crash_cb, CR_DELAYMSGS);
