elf32_getshdr, elf64_getshdr - retrieve class-dependent section header
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lelf [ library ... ] #include <libelf.h> Elf32_Shdr *elf32_getshdr(Elf_Scn *scn); Elf64_Shdr *elf64_getshdr(Elf_Scn *scn);
For a 32-bit class file, elf32_getshdr() returns a pointer to a section header for the section descriptor scn. Otherwise, the file is not a 32-bit class file, scn was NULL, or an error occurred; elf32_getshdr() then returns NULL. The elf32_getshdr header includes the following members: Elf32_Word sh_name; Elf32_Word sh_type; Elf32_Word sh_flags; Elf32_Addr sh_addr; Elf32_Off sh_offset; Elf32_Word sh_size; Elf32_Word sh_link; Elf32_Word sh_info; Elf32_Word sh_addralign; Elf32_Word sh_entsize; while the elf64_getshdr header includes the following members: Elf64_Word sh_name; Elf64_Word sh_type; Elf64_Xword sh_flags; Elf64_Addr sh_addr; Elf64_Off sh_offset; Elf64_Xword sh_size; Elf64_Word sh_link; Elf64_Word sh_info; Elf64_Xword sh_addralign; Elf64_Xword sh_entsize; For the 64-bit class, replace 32 with 64 as appropriate. If the program is building a new file, it is responsible for creating the file's ELF header before creating sections.
