KINFO_GETFILE(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	      KINFO_GETFILE(3)

NAME
     kinfo_getfile — function for getting per-process file descriptor informa‐
     tion

LIBRARY
     System Utilities Library (libutil, -lutil)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <libutil.h>

     struct kinfo_file *
     kinfo_getfile(pid_t pid, int *cntp);

DESCRIPTION
     This function is used for obtaining the file descriptor information of a
     particular process.

     The pid field contains the process identifier.  This should be the a
     process that you have privilige to access.	 The cntp field is allows the
     caller to know how many records are returned.

     This function is a wrapper around sysctl(3) with the KERN_PROC_FILEDESC
     mib.  While the kernel returns a packed structure, this function expands
     the data into a fixed record format.

RETURN VALUES
     On success the kinfo_getfile() function returns a pointer to an array of
     struct kinfo_file structures as defined by <sys/user.h>.  The array was
     obtained by an internal call to malloc(3) and must be freed by the caller
     with a call to free(3).  On failure the kinfo_getfile() function returns
     NULL.
