I am currently in the process of retrieving the virtual function pointers from the vtable though writing a pass and examining the IR.
I know that the vtable is represented with names beginning in “_ZTV” and i32 (…)** represents the type of the vptr fields.
Where I am stuck and need help with is in getting the vptr addresses from the array being accessed by the getelementptr:
store i32 (…)** bitcast (i8** getelementptr inbounds ([5 x i8*], [5 x i8*]* @_ZTV9Rectangle, i32 0, i32 2) to i32 (…)), i32 (…)* %5, align 8
I am able to get this operand from the store instruction op and know that it is a ConstantExpr, how do i access the individual indices. I know that I need the info from index 2 till 5 in this case.
Can anyone help with getting the vptr address from within the table?
