KVM_GETFILES(3)        FreeBSD Library Functions Manual        KVM_GETFILES(3)

NAME
     kvm_getfiles -- survey open files

LIBRARY
     Kernel Data Access Library (libkvm, -lkvm)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <kvm.h>
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #define _KERNEL
     #include <sys/file.h>
     #undef _KERNEL

     char *
     kvm_getfiles(kvm_t *kd, int op, int arg, int *cnt);

DESCRIPTION
     The kvm_getfiles() function returns a (sub-)set of the open files in the
     kernel indicated by kd.  The op and arg arguments constitute a predicate
     which limits the set of files returned.  No predicates are currently
     defined.

     The number of files found is returned in the reference parameter cnt.
     The files are returned as a contiguous array of file structures, preceded
     by the address of the first file entry in the kernel.  This memory is
     owned by kvm and is not guaranteed to be persistent across subsequent kvm
     library calls.  Data should be copied out if it needs to be saved.

RETURN VALUES
     The kvm_getfiles() function will return NULL on failure.

SEE ALSO
     kvm(3), kvm_close(3), kvm_geterr(3), kvm_nlist(3), kvm_open(3),
     kvm_openfiles(3), kvm_read(3), kvm_write(3)

BUGS
     This routine does not belong in the kvm interface.
