GELF_GETCAP(3)             Library Functions Manual             GELF_GETCAP(3)

NAME
     gelf_getcap, gelf_update_cap -- read and update ELF capability
     information

LIBRARY
     ELF Access Library (libelf, -lelf)

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

     GElf_Cap *
     gelf_getcap(Elf_Data *data, int ndx, GElf_Cap *cap);

     int
     gelf_update_cap(Elf_Data *data, int ndx, GElf_Cap *cap);

DESCRIPTION
     These convenience functions are used to retrieve and update class-
     dependent Elf32_Cap or Elf64_Cap information.

     Argument data is an Elf_Data descriptor associated with a section of type
     SHT_SUNW_cap.  Argument ndx is the index of the entry being retrieved or
     updated.  The class-independent GElf_Cap structure is described in
     gelf(3).

     Function gelf_getcap() retrieves the class-dependent entry at index ndx
     in data buffer data and copies it to the destination pointed to by
     argument cap after translation to class-independent form.

     Function gelf_update_cap() converts the class-independent entry pointed
     to by argument cap to class-dependent form, and writes it to the entry at
     index ndx in the data buffer described by argument data.  Function
     gelf_update_cap() signals an error if any of the values in the class-
     independent representation exceeds the representable limits of the target
     type.

RETURN VALUES
     Function gelf_getcap() returns the value of argument cap if successful,
     or NULL in case of an error.  Function gelf_update_cap() returns a non-
     zero value if successful, or zero in case of an error.

ERRORS
     These functions may fail with the following errors:

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Arguments data or cap were NULL.

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument ndx was less than zero or larger than the
                       number of entries in the data descriptor.

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Data descriptor data was not associated with a section
                       of type SHT_SUNW_cap.

     [ELF_E_RANGE]     A value was not representable in the target type.
