NAME
     elf_getshnum -- return the number of sections in an ELF file

LIBRARY
     library ``libelf''

SYNOPSIS
     #include <libelf.h>

     int
     elf_getshnum(Elf *elf, size_t *shnum);

DESCRIPTION
     Function elf_getshnum() retrieves the number of ELF sections associated with descriptor elf
     and stores it into the location pointed to by argument shnum.

     This routine allows applications to uniformly process both normal ELF objects, and ELF
     objects that use extended section numbering.

RETURN VALUES
     Function elf_getshnum() returns a non-zero value if successful, or zero in case of an error.

ERRORS
     Function elf_getshnum() can fail with the following errors:

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  A NULL value was passed in for argument elf.

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

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument elf lacks an ELF Executable header.
