idaman int ida_export
get_name_value(ea_t from, const char *name, uval_t *value)
Returns the value into *value, represented by the name *name, relative to the address from. *value will contain either a stack offset or linear address. If you are after a name that is local to a function, from should be within the same function, or it won't be seen. If you are not after a local name, from should just be BADADDR. The return value is one of the following, representing the type of name it is. Taken from name.hpp:

#define NT_NONE 0 // name doesn't exist or has no value
#define NT_BYTE 1 // name is byte name (regular name)
#define NT_LOCAL 2 // name is local label
#define NT_STKVAR 3 // name is stack variable name
#define NT_ENUM 4 // name is symbolic constant
#define NT_ABS 5 // name is absolute symbol (SEG_ABSSYM)
#define NT_SEG 6 // name is segment or segment register name
#define NT_STROFF 7 // name is structure member
#define NT_BMASK 8 // name is a bit group mask name

Examples:
#include <kernwin.hpp> // For get_screen_ea() and askstr()
#include <name.hpp>

uval_t value;
ea_t addr = get_screen_ea();

// Ask the user for a name
char *name = askstr(HIST_IDENT, "start", "Please enter a name");

// Get the value of that name, relative to addr
int type = get_name_value(addr, name, &value);

// The type will correspond to one of the NT_ values defined in name.hpp.
// Value will be FFFFFFF4 for the first local variable or 8 for the first argument to a
// function. It could also be the linear address of the strcpy() definition for example.
msg("Type: %d, Value: %a\n", type, value);
