dwarf_add_fde_inst – add a call frame instruction to a DWARF frame descriptor



DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf)


#include <libdwarf.h>

dwarf_add_fde_inst(Dwarf_P_Fde fde, Dwarf_Small op, Dwarf_Unsigned val1, Dwarf_Unsigned val2, Dwarf_Error *err);


Function dwarf_add_fde_inst() adds a call frame instruction to the DWARF frame descriptor referenced by argument fde.

Argument fde should reference a frame descriptor allocated using dwarf_new_fde(3).

Argument op specifies the operator for the frame instruction. The DWARF standard defines the set of legal values for this argument.

Argument val1 specifies the first operand of the frame instruction.

Argument val2 specifies the second operand of the frame instruction.

If argument err is not NULL, it will be used to store error information in case of an error.


On success, function dwarf_add_fde_inst() returns the frame descriptor given in argument fde. In case of an error, function dwarf_add_fde_inst() returns DW_DLV_BADADDR and sets the argument err.


Function dwarf_add_fde_inst() can fail with:
[DW_DLE_ARGUMENT] Argument fde was NULL.
[DW_DLE_FRAME_INSTR_EXEC_ERROR] The frame instruction operator specified in argument op was invalid.
[DW_DLE_MEMORY] An out of memory condition was encountered during the execution of the function.

Our grievance is not just against Unix itself, but against the cult of Unix zealots who defend and nurture it. They take the heat, disease, and pestilence as givens, and, as ancient shamans did, display their wounds, some self-inflicted, as proof of their power and wizardry. We aim, through bluntness and humor, to show them that they pray to a tin god, and that science, not religion, is the path to useful and friendly technology.
