ELF_GETSHSTRNDX(3)         Library Functions Manual         ELF_GETSHSTRNDX(3)

NAME
     elf_getshstrndx, elf_setshstrndx -- retrieve/update the index of the
     section name string table

LIBRARY
     ELF Access Library (libelf, -lelf)

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

     int
     elf_getshstrndx(Elf *elf, size_t *ndxptr);

     int
     elf_setshstrndx(Elf *elf, size_t ndx);

DESCRIPTION
     Function elf_getshstrndx() retrieves the section index of the string
     table containing section names from descriptor elf and stores it into the
     location pointed to by argument ndxptr.

     Function elf_setshstrndx() sets the index of the section name string
     table to argument ndx.

     These routines allow applications to process both normal ELF objects and
     ELF objects that use extended section numbering uniformly.

RETURN VALUES
     These functions return a non-zero value if successful, or zero in case of
     an error.

ERRORS
     These functions 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_ARGUMENT]  Argument ndx contained a value in the reserved range of
                       section indices.
