NAMEmakecontext, swapcontext - manipulate user contexts
DESCRIPTIONThe makecontext() function shall modify the context specified by ucp, which has been initialized using getcontext(). When this context is resumed using swapcontext() or setcontext(), program execution shall continue by calling func, passing it the arguments that follow argc in the makecontext() call.
Before a call is made to makecontext(), the application shall ensure that the context being modified has a stack allocated for it. The application shall ensure that the value of argc matches the number of arguments of type int passed to func; otherwise, the behavior is undefined.
The uc_link member is used to determine the context that shall be resumed when the context being modified by makecontext() returns. The application shall ensure that the uc_link member is initialized prior to the call to makecontext().
The swapcontext() function shall save the current context in the context structure pointed to by oucp and shall set the context to the context structure pointed to by ucp.
RETURN VALUEUpon successful completion, swapcontext() shall return 0. Otherwise, -1 shall be returned and errno set to indicate the error.
ERRORSThe swapcontext() function shall fail if:
ucp argument does not have enough stack left to complete the operation.
The following sections are informative.
EXAMPLESThe following example illustrates the use of makecontext():
static ucontext_t ctx;
ctx.uc_stack.ss_sp = st1;
ctx.uc_stack.ss_size = sizeof st1;
ctx.uc_link = &ctx;
makecontext(&ctx, f1, 0);
ctx.uc_stack.ss_sp = st2;
ctx.uc_stack.ss_size = sizeof st2;
ctx.uc_link = &ctx;
makecontext(&ctx, f2, 0);
