GELF_GETCAP(3)						   BSD 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 <gelf.h> 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.
