Linunwind defines a portable and efficient C programming interface (API) to determine the call-chain of a program.

The API additionally provides the means to manipulate the preserved (callee-saved) state of each call-frame and to resume execution at any point in the call-chain (non-local goto).

The API supports both local (same-process) and remote (across-process) operation.
