KVM_NLIST(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual		  KVM_NLIST(3)

NAME
     kvm_nlist — retrieve symbol table names from a kernel image

SYNOPSIS
     #include <kvm.h>
     #include <nlist.h>

     int
     kvm_nlist(kvm_t *kd, struct nlist *nl);

DESCRIPTION
     kvm_nlist() retrieves the symbol table entries indicated by the name list
     argument nl.  This argument points to an array of nlist structures, ter‐
     minated by an entry whose n_name field is NULL (see nlist(3)).  Each sym‐
     bol is looked up using the n_name field, and if found, the corresponding
     n_type and n_value fields are filled in.  These fields are set to 0 if
     the symbol is not found.

     The program kvm_mkdb(8) builds a database from the running kernel's
     namelist.	If the database matches the opened kernel, kvm_nlist() uses it
     to speed lookups.

RETURN VALUES
     The kvm_nlist() function returns the number of invalid entries found.  If
     the kernel symbol table was unreadable, -1 is returned.

FILES
     /var/db/kvm_vmunix.db
