ldtbindex - compute the index of a symbol table entry of a COFF file
long ldtbindex (ldptr)
Available only on Sun 386i systems running a SunOS 4.0.x release or
earlier. Not a SunOS 4.1 release feature.
ldtbindex() returns the (long) index of the symbol table entry at the
current position of the COFF file associated with ldptr.
The index returned by ldtbindex() may be used in subsequent calls to
ldtbread(3X). However, since ldtbindex () returns the index of the
symbol table entry that begins at the current position of the object
file, if ldtbindex() is called immediately after a particular symbol
table entry has been read, it will return the index of the next entry.
ldtbindex() will fail if there are no symbols in the object file, or if
the object file is not positioned at the beginning of a symbol table
Note that the first symbol in the symbol table has an index of zero.
The program must be loaded with the object file access routine library
