LDLSEEK(3X)                                                        LDLSEEK(3X)



NAME
       ldlseek,  ldnlseek - seek to line number entries of a section of a COFF
       file

SYNOPSIS
       #include <&lt;stdio.h>&gt;
       #include <&lt;filehdr.h>&gt;
       #include <&lt;ldfcn.h>&gt;

       int ldlseek (ldptr, sectindx)
       LDFILE *ldptr;
       unsigned short sectindx;

       int ldnlseek (ldptr, sectname)
       LDFILE *ldptr;
       char *sectname;

AVAILABILITY
       Available only on Sun 386i systems running a  SunOS  4.0.x  release  or
       earlier.  Not a SunOS 4.1 release feature.

DESCRIPTION
       ldlseek()  seeks to the line number entries of the section specified by
       sectindx of the COFF file currently associated with ldptr.

       ldnlseek() seeks to the line number entries of the section specified by
       sectname.

       ldlseek()  and  ldnlseek()  return  SUCCESS or FAILURE.  ldlseek() will
       fail if sectindx is greater than the number of sections in  the  object
       file;  ldnlseek()  will  fail if there is no section name corresponding
       with *sectname.  Either function will fail if the specified section has
       no  line number entries or if it cannot seek to the specified line num-
       ber entries.

       Note that the first section has an index of one.

       The program must be loaded with the object file access routine  library
       libld.a.
