bt_translate_addrs()

Updated: May 06, 2022

Translate the addresses from a backtrace

Note: The backtrace library is an unsupported feature, due to its fragility. For more information, see Backtraces in the QNX Neutrino technotes.

Synopsis:

#include <backtrace.h>

void bt_translate_addrs( bt_memmap_t *memmap,
                         bt_addr_t *addrs,
                         int addrslen,
                         bt_addr_t *reladdrs,
                         bt_addr_t *offsets,
                         int *index,
                         char **filenames );

Arguments:

memmap
A pointer to memory-map information for the process you've collected backtracing for. Use bt_load_memmap() to initialize this variable.
addrs
An array of addresses that you want to translate.
addrslen
The number of entries in the addrs array, as well as the number of entries in the reladdrs, offsets, index, and filenames arrays (if non-NULL).
reladdrs
NULL, or an array where the function can store the addresses as specified in the object files.
offsets
NULL, or an array where the function can store the difference between the in-file address and in-memory address (i.e., offsets[0] = addr[0] - mod_addr[0]).
index
NULL, or an array where the function can store the memory map index for each address.
filenames
NULL, or an array where the function can store the object file name for each address.
Note: The file names aren't copied from the memory map, so they're valid only until you unload the memory map.

Library:

libbacktrace

Use the -l backtrace option to qcc to link against this library.

Description:

The bt_translate_addrs() function translates all process addresses in addrs. You can pass a NULL pointer for any of the result arrays that you don't need.

Note: Programs typically use bt_sprnf_addrs() instead of bt_translate_addrs().
