P_CANSEE(9) MidnightBSD Kernel Developer’s Manual P_CANSEE(9)

NAME

p_cansee — determine visibility of a process

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/param.h>
#include <sys/proc.h>

int

p_cansee(struct thread *td, struct proc *p);

DESCRIPTION

This function can be used to determine if a given process p is visible to the thread td, where the notion of ‘‘visibility’’ may be read as ‘‘awareness of existence’’.

The function is implemented using cr_cansee(9), and the dependencies on sysctl(8) variables documented in the cr_cansee(9) manual page apply.

RETURN VALUES

The p_cansee() function returns 0 if the process denoted by p is visible by thread td, or a non-zero error return value otherwise.

ERRORS
[ESRCH]

Process p is not visible to thread td as determined by cr_cansee(9).

[ESRCH]

Thread td has been jailed and process p does not belong to the same jail as td.

[ESRCH]

The MAC subsystem denied visibility.
