elf_getphnum -- return the number of program headers in an ELF file
elf_getphnum(Elf *elf, size_t *phnum);
Function elf_getphnum() retrieves the number of ELF program headers associated with descrip-
tor elf and stores it into the location pointed to by argument phnum.
This routine allows applications to uniformly process both normal ELF objects and ELF
objects that use extended numbering.
Function elf_getphnum() returns a non-zero value if successful, or zero in case of an error.
Function elf_getphnum() can fail with the following errors:
[ELF_E_ARGUMENT] A NULL value was passed in for argument elf.
