SETJMP(2)                     System Calls Manual                    SETJMP(2)

       setjmp, longjmp, notejmp - non-local goto

       #include <u.h>
       #include <libc.h>

       int  setjmp(jmp_buf env)

       void longjmp(jmp_buf env, int val)

       void notejmp(void *uregs, jump_buf env, int val)

       These  routines  are  useful for dealing with errors and interrupts en‐
       countered in a low-level subroutine of a program.

       Setjmp saves its stack environment in env for later use by longjmp.  It
       returns value 0.

       Longjmp  restores the environment saved by the last call of setjmp.  It
       then causes execution to continue as if the call of setjmp had just re‐
       turned  with value val.  The invoker of setjmp must not itself have re‐
       turned in the interim.  All accessible data have values as of the  time
       longjmp was called.

       Notejmp  is  the  same  as  longjmp except that it is to be called from
       within a note handler (see notify(2)).  The uregs  argument  should  be
       the first argument passed to the note handler.

       Setjmp  and  longjmp  can  also  be  used to switch stacks.  Defined in
       </$objtype/u.h> are several macros that can be used to  build  jmp_bufs
       by  hand.   The following code establishes a jmp_buf that may be called
       by longjmp to begin execution in a function f with 1024 bytes of stack:

              #include <u.h>
              #include <libc.h>

              jmp_buf label;
              #define NSTACK 1024
              char stack[NSTACK];

                   label[JMPBUFPC] = ((ulong)f+JMPBUFDPC);
                   /* -2 leaves room for old pc and new pc in frame */
                   label[JMPBUFSP =



       Notejmp cannot recover from an address trap or bus error  (page  fault)
       on the 680x0 architectures.
