NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for elf_end (netbsd section 3)

ELF_END(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		       ELF_END(3)

NAME
     elf_end -- release an ELF descriptor

LIBRARY
     library ``libelf''

SYNOPSIS
     #include <libelf.h>

     int
     elf_end(Elf *elf);

DESCRIPTION
     Function elf_end() is used to release the resources associated with an ELF descriptor
     pointed to by argument elf.  This descriptor must have been allocated by a previous call to
     elf_begin(3) or elf_memory(3).  For programming convenience, a NULL value is permitted for
     argument elf.

     A call to elf_end() decrements the activation count for descriptor elf by one.  The
     resources associated with the descriptor are only released with its activation count goes to
     zero.

     Once function elf_end() returns zero, the ELF descriptor elf will no longer be valid and
     should not be used further.

RETURN VALUES
     Function elf_end() returns the current value of the ELF descriptor elf's activation count,
     or zero if argument elf was NULL.
