ELF_RAWFILE(3)             Library Functions Manual             ELF_RAWFILE(3)

NAME
     elf_rawfile -- return uninterpreted contents of an ELF file

LIBRARY
     ELF Access Library (libelf, -lelf)

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

     char *
     elf_rawfile(Elf *elf, size_t *sz);

DESCRIPTION
     Function elf_rawfile() returns the uninterpreted contents of the file
     referenced by ELF descriptor elf.

     If argument sz is non-null, the function stores the file's size in bytes
     in the location to which it points.  A value of zero is written to this
     location if an error is encountered.

RETURN VALUES
     Function elf_rawfile() returns a valid pointer if successful or NULL if
     an error occurs.

ERRORS
     Function elf_rawfile() may fail with the following errors:

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument elf was NULL.

     [ELF_E_SEQUENCE]  Argument elf was opened for writing and function
                       elf_rawfile() was invoked before elf_update(3).
