Resume the given task after an exception has been reported.


#include <zircon/syscalls.h>

zx_status_t zx_task_resume_from_exception(zx_handle_t handle,
                                          zx_handle_t port,
                                          uint32_t options);


Note: exception ports are deprecated and will be removed soon. See exceptions for information on the replacement API.

zx_task_resume_from_exception() causes the requested task to resume after an exception has been reported to the debug exception port. The port parameter should identify the exception port to which the exception being resumed from was delivered.

Note that if a thread has any open suspend tokens, it will remain suspended even when resumed from an exception.

There are two ways to resume from an exception, depending on whether one wants the thread to resume where it left off, which in the case of an architectural exception generally means retrying the offending instruction, or give the next handler in the search order a chance to handle the exception. See zx_task_bind_exception_port() for a description of exception processing.

To resume a thread where it left off, pass 0 for the options:

zx_status_t status = zx_task_resume_from_exception(thread, port, 0);

To pass the exception on to the next handler in the search order, pass ZX_RESUME_TRY_NEXT for the options.

zx_status_t status = zx_task_resume_from_exception(thread, port, ZX_RESUME_TRY_NEXT);


handle must be of type ZX_OBJ_TYPE_THREAD.

port must be of type ZX_OBJ_TYPE_PORT.


zx_task_resume_from_exception() returns ZX_OK on success. In the event of failure, a negative error value is returned.


ZX_ERR_ACCESS_DENIED port is not the port from which the exception report was sent.

ZX_ERR_BAD_HANDLE Either handle or port is not a valid handle.

ZX_ERR_WRONG_TYPE Either handle is not a thread handle, or port is not a port handle.

ZX_ERR_BAD_STATE The task is not in a state where resuming is possible, for example, it is dead or there is not an exception to resume from.

ZX_ERR_INVALID_ARGS options is not valid.


Currently only thread handles are supported.
