KVM_NLIST(3)              OpenBSD Programmer's Manual             KVM_NLIST(3)

     kvm_nlist - retrieve symbol table names from a kernel image

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

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

     kvm_nlist() retrieves the symbol table entries indicated by the name list
     argument nl. This argument points to an array of nlist structures, termi-
     nated by an entry whose n_name field is NULL (see nlist(3)).  Each symbol
     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.

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