NAME
     elf_getphnum -- return the number of program headers in an ELF file

LIBRARY
     ELF Access Library (libelf, -lelf)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;libelf.h>&gt;

     int
     elf_getphnum(Elf *elf, size_t *phnum);

DESCRIPTION
     Function elf_getphnum() retrieves the number of ELF program headers
     associated with descriptor elf and stores it into the location pointed to
     by argument phnum.

     This routine allows applications to uniformly process both normal ELF
     objects and ELF objects that use extended numbering.

RETURN VALUES
     Function elf_getphnum() returns a non-zero value if successful, or zero
     in case of an error.

ERRORS
     Function elf_getphnum() can fail with the following errors:

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  A NULL value was passed in for argument elf.

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument elf was not for an ELF file.

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument elf lacks an ELF Executable Header.

     [ELF_E_HEADER]    The ELF Executable Header associated with argument elf
                       was corrupt.

     [ELF_E_SECTION]   The section header at index SHN_UNDEF was corrupt.
