ELF_GETSHSTRNDX(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 	       ELF_GETSHSTRNDX(3)

NAME
     elf_getshstrndx, elf_setshstrndx -- retrieve/update the index of the section name string ta-
     ble

LIBRARY
     library ``libelf''

SYNOPSIS
     #include <libelf.h>

     int
     elf_getshstrndx(Elf *elf, size_t *ndxptr);

     int
     elf_setshstrndx(Elf *elf, size_t ndx);

DESCRIPTION
     Function elf_getshstrndx() retrieves the section index of the string table containing sec-
     tion names from descriptor elf and stores it into the location pointed to by argument
     ndxptr.

     Function elf_setshstrndx() sets the index of the section name string table to argument ndx.

     These routines allow applications to process both normal ELF objects and ELF objects that
     use extended section numbering uniformly.

RETURN VALUES
     These functions return a non-zero value if successful, or zero in case of an error.

ERRORS
     These functions 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.

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument ndx contained a value in the reserved range of section indices.
