C COMPILER LIBRARY FUNCTIONS->Detailed Descriptions->_getvect()
void *_getvect(unsigned int n) Get the interrupt handler
n Address of interrupt vector
This routine reads the contents of the interrupt vector located at address n and returns it as a pointer. This void pointer therefore represents a pointer to the interrupt handler function. Typically this function would be called prior to a call to _setvect() to save the address of the interrupt handler before it is overwritten by _setvect().
Header file os.h contains prototypes for _getvect() and _setvect(). Header os.h also contains the vector numbers for the ColdFire core and these can be used in conjunction with the _X_VO predefined macro to calculate the value of n at compile time.
See Runtime Modification of Interrupt Vectors for an example of using _setvect() and _getvect().
Address of the interrupt handler cast to a void pointer.
