GELF_CHECKSUM(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 		 GELF_CHECKSUM(3)

     elf32_checksum, elf64_checksum, gelf_checksum -- return the checksum of an ELF object

     library ``libelf''

     #include <libelf.h>

     elf32_checksum(Elf *elf);

     elf64_checksum(Elf *elf);

     #include <gelf.h>

     gelf_checksum(Elf *elf);

     These functions return a simple checksum of the ELF object described by their argument elf.
     The checksum is computed in way that allows its value to remain unchanged in presence of
     modifications to the ELF object by utilities like strip(1).

     Function elf32_checksum() returns a checksum for an ELF descriptor elf of class ELFCLASS32.

     Function elf64_checksum() returns a checksum for an ELF descriptor elf of class ELFCLASS64.

     Function gelf_checksum() provides a class-independent way retrieving the checksum for ELF
     object elf.

     These functions return the checksum of the ELF object, or zero in case an error was encoun-

     These functions may fail with the following errors:

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument elf was NULL.

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument elf was not a descriptor for an ELF file.

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  The ELF descriptor elf was not opened for reading or updating.

     [ELF_E_CLASS]     For functions elf32_checksum() and elf64_checksum(), ELF descriptor elf
		       did not match the class of the called function.

     [ELF_E_HEADER]    The ELF object specified by argument elf had a malformed executable

     [ELF_E_RESOURCE]  An out of memory condition was detected during processing.

     [ELF_E_SECTION]   The ELF object specified by argument elf contained a section with a mal-
		       formed section header.

     [ELF_E_VERSION]   The ELF object was of an unsupported version.
