 nlist(4)							    nlist(4)




 NAME
      nlist, nlist64 - nlist and nlist64 structure formats, respectively

 SYNOPSIS
      #include <&lt&lt&lt;nlist.h>&gt&gt&gt;

    Remarks
      The exact content of the structures defined below can be best found by
      examining /usr/include/nlist.h.  It varies somewhat between various
      HP-UX implementations.

 DESCRIPTION
      nlist() and nlist64() can be used to extract information from the
      symbol table in an object file (see nlist(3C)).  They are basically
      the same tool except nlist() can only process SOM files on a PA32
      system while nlist64() can process SOM and Elf files on either a PA32
      or PA64 system.  Since symbol tables are machine dependent (as defined
      in each implementation's copy of <a.out.h>), a header file, nlist.h is
      defined to encapsulate the differences.

      The nlist function, either nlist() or nlist64(), when used with the
      corresponding nlist structure, can be used to extract certain
      information about selected symbols in the symbol table.  The data
      associated with each symbol is machine specific, thus only the name
      and position of the n_name field in the function is standardized by
      HP-UX.  The rest of the structure includes at least the value and type
      of the symbol.  The names and meanings of all fields not standardized
      will change no more than necessary.
