LDSSEEK(3X)                                                        LDSSEEK(3X)



NAME
       ldsseek, ldnsseek - seek to an indexednamed section of a COFF file

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

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

       int ldnsseek (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
       ldsseek() seeks to the section specified by sectindx of the  COFF  file
       currently associated with ldptr.

       ldnsseek() seeks to the section specified by sectname.

       ldsseek()  and  ldnsseek()  return  SUCCESS or FAILURE.  ldsseek() will
       fail if sectindx is greater than the number of sections in  the  object
       file;  ldnsseek()  will  fail if there is no section name corresponding
       with sectname.  Either function will fail if there is no  section  data
       for  the  specified  section or if it cannot seek to the specified sec-
       tion.

       Note: the first section has an index of one.

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