UNW_GET_FPREG(3)	     Programming Library	      UNW_GET_FPREG(3)

NAME
       unw_get_fpreg --	get contents of	floating-point register

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libunwind.h>

       int   unw_get_fpreg(unw_cursor_t	 *cp,  unw_regnum_t  reg,  unw_fpreg_t
       *valp);

DESCRIPTION
       The unw_get_fpreg() routine reads the value of floating-point  register
       reg  in the stack frame identified by cursor cp and stores the value in
       the variable pointed to by valp.

       The register numbering is target-dependent and  described  in  separate
       manual  pages (e.g., libunwind-ia64(3) for the IA-64 target).  Further-
       more, the exact set of accessible registers may depend on the  type  of
       frame  that  cp	is referring to. For ordinary stack frames, it is nor-
       mally possible to access	only the preserved  (``callee-saved'')	regis-
       ters  and frame-related registers (such as the stack-pointer). However,
       for signal frames (see unw_is_signal_frame(3)), it is usually  possible
       to access all registers.

       Note  that unw_get_fpreg() can only read	the contents of	floating-point
       registers. See unw_get_fpreg(3) for a way to read registers  which  fit
       in a single word.

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

THREAD AND SIGNAL SAFETY
       unw_get_fpreg() is thread-safe as well as safe to  use  from  a	signal
       handler.

ERRORS
       UNW_EUNSPEC
	       An unspecified error occurred.

       UNW_EBADREG
	       An  attempt  was	made to	read a register	that is	either invalid
	      or not accessible	in the current frame.

       In addition, unw_get_fpreg() may	return any error returned by  the  ac-
       cess_mem(),  access_reg(),  and access_fpreg() call-backs (see unw_cre-
       ate_addr_space(3)).
