ELF_STRPTR(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		    ELF_STRPTR(3)

NAME
     elf_strptr -- retrieve a string pointer in a string table

LIBRARY
     library ``libelf''

SYNOPSIS
     #include <libelf.h>

     char *
     elf_strptr(Elf *elf, size_t scndx, size_t stroffset);

DESCRIPTION
     Function elf_strptr() allows an application to convert a string table offset to a string
     pointer, correctly translating the offset in the presence of multiple Elf_Data descriptors
     covering the contents of the section.

     Argument elf is a descriptor for an ELF object.  Argument scndx is the section index for an
     ELF string table.	Argument stroffset is the index of the desired string in the string ta-
     ble.

RETURN VALUES
     Function elf_strptr() returns a valid pointer on success or NULL in case an error was
     encountered.

ERRORS
     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument elf was NULL

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

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument scndx was not the section index for a string table.

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument stroffset exceeeded the size of the string table.

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument stroffset index an unallocated region of the string table.

     [ELF_E_DATA]      Offset stroffset indexed a region that was not covered by any Elf_Data
		       descriptor.

     [ELF_E_DATA]      An erroneous Elf_Data descriptor was part of the section specified by
		       argument scndx.

     [ELF_E_HEADER]    ELF descriptor elf contained an invalid section header.

     [ELF_E_RESOURCE]  An out of memory condition was detected.

     [ELF_E_SECTION]   Section scndx contained a malformed section header.

     [ELF_E_SECTION]   The ELF descriptor in argument elf did not adhere to the conventions used
		       for extended numbering.
