SYNOPSIS

#include <libunwind.h>

int unw_get_fpreg(unw_cursor_t *cp, unw_regnum_t reg, unw_fpreg_t *valp);

DESCRIPTION

The unw_get_fpreg() routine reads the value of floating-point register reg in the stack frame identified by cursor cp and stores the value in the variable pointed to by valp.

The register numbering is target-dependent and described in separate manual pages (e.g., libunwind-ia64(3) for the IA-64 target). Furthermore, the exact set of accessible registers may depend on the type of frame that cp is referring to. For ordinary stack frames, it is normally possible to access only the preserved (‘‘callee-saved’’) registers and frame-related registers (such as the stack-pointer). However, for signal frames (see unw_is_signal_frame(3)), it is usually possible to access all registers.

Note that unw_get_fpreg() can only read the contents of floating-point registers. See unw_get_fpreg(3) for a way to read registers which fit in a single word.

RETURN VALUE

On successful completion, unw_get_fpreg() returns 0. Otherwise the negative value of one of the error-codes below is returned.

THREAD AND SIGNAL SAFETY

unw_get_fpreg() is thread-safe as well as safe to use from a signal handler.

ERRORS

UNW_EUNSPEC
  An unspecified error occurred.
UNW_EBADREG
  An attempt was made to read a register that is either invalid or not accessible in the current frame.
In addition, unw_get_fpreg() may return any error returned by the access_mem(), access_reg(), and access_fpreg() call-backs (see unw_create_addr_space(3)).
