 cr_verify(3)                                                   cr_verify(3)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      cr_verify - verify integrity of crash dump

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      #include <libcrash.h>

      int cr_verify(CRASH *crash_cb, int flags);

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      cr_verify() uncompresses and verifies the sizes and checksums of every
      file in the crash dump identified by crash_cb.

      flags is a bitmask of zero or more of the following flag values:

      CR_NOCHECKSUM         cr_verify() will not attempt to verify checksums
                            of files in the crash dump if this flag is set.
                            Only sizes will be verified.

      CR_DELAYMSGS          cr_verify() will write messages to stderr during
                            time-consuming operations (decompressions and
                            checksums) if this flag is set.

      CR_ERRORMSGS          cr_verify() will write messages to stderr
                            describing any validation problems that are
                            encountered.  If this flag is set, cr_perror()
                            should not be called when cr_verify() returns;
                            repeated error messages would result.

 RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]
      Returns zero for success.  Other possible return values are described
      in libcrash(5).

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
      The following call to cr_verify(3) verifies the integrity of the dump.

           #include <libcrash.h>

           CRASH *crash_cb;
           int ret;

           ret = cr_verify(crash_cb, CR_DELAYMSGS | CR_ERRORMSGS);

 WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]
      Because it uncompresses and checksums all files in a dump, cr_verify()
      can be very time-consuming.  If CR_DELAYMSGS was not specified, the
      calling application should notify its user before calling cr_verify()
      that there may be a significant delay.
