LIBRARY
DWARF Access Library (libdwarf, -ldwarf)
SYNOPSIS
#include <libdwarf.h> int dwarf_get_elf(Dwarf_Debug dbg, Elf **elf, Dwarf_Error *err);
DESCRIPTION
Function dwarf_get_elf() returns the Elf descriptor associated with a Dwarf_Debug instance. Argument dbg should be a handle to a valid Dwarf_Debug instance returned by a prior call to dwarf_init(3) or dwarf_elf_init(3). Argument elf points a location into which a handle to an Elf descriptor will be written. Argument err is used to record error information in case of failure.
RETURN VALUES
On success, function dwarf_get_elf() returns DW_DLV_OK. In case of an error, it returns DW_DLV_ERROR and sets argument err.
EXAMPLES
To retrieve the Elf instance associated with a Dwarf_Debug instance use: Dwarf_Debug dbg; Dwarf_Error de; Elf *elf; ... allocate dbg using dwarf_init() etc ... if (dwarf_get_elf(dbg, &elf, &de) != DW_DLV_OK) errx(EXIT_FAILURE, "dwarf_get_elf: %s", dwarf_errmsg(de));
