       ldtbseek - seek to the symbol table of a common object file

       #include <stdio.h>
       #include <filehdr.h>
       #include <syms.h>
       #include <ldfcn.h>

       int ldtbseek (ldptr)
       LDFILE *ldptr;

       The function seeks to the symbol table of the  object file currently associated with ldptr.

       The function returns success or failure.  If the symbol table has been stripped from the object file or if it cannot seek to the symbol ta-
       ble, ldtbseek fails.

ldgetname - Retrieve symbol name for object file symbol table entry SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h> #include <filehdr.h> #include <sym.h> #include <ldfcn.h> char *ldgetname (ldptr, symbol) LDFILE * ldptr ; pSYMR * symbol ; DESCRIPTION
The ldgetname routine returns a pointer to the name associated with symbol. The pointer is returned as a string in a static buffer. Because the buffer can be overwritten by later calls to ldgetname, the caller must copy the buffer if the name is to be saved. If the name cannot be retrieved, ldgetname returns NULL (defined in <stdio.h>) for an object file. This occurs when: The string table can- not be found The name's offset into the string table is beyond the end of the string table Typically, ldgetname is called immediately after a successful call to ldtbread. Ldgetname retrieves the name associated with the symbol ta- ble entry filled by ldtbread. The program must be loaded with the object file access routine library libmld.a. [Tru64 UNIX] For C++, ldgetname returns the demangled name. RELATED INFORMATION
