KINFO_GETVMMAP(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	     KINFO_GETVMMAP(3)

     kinfo_getvmmap — function for getting per-process memory map information

     System Utilities Library (libutil, -lutil)

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

     struct kinfo_vmentry *
     kinfo_getvmmap(pid_t pid, int *cntp);

     This function is used for obtaining virtual memory mapping 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_VMMAP mib.
     While the kernel returns a packed structure, this function expands the
     data into a fixed record format.

     On success the kinfo_getvmmap() function returns a pointer to an array of
     struct kinfo_vmentry 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_getvmmap() function
     returns NULL.

     free(3), kinfo_getfile(3), malloc(3)
