Any idea other than INFORMIX C-ISAM library, because it is not free ware,
Any Freeware available?

elf_getscn(3E)															    elf_getscn(3E)

elf_getscn(), elf_ndxscn(), elf_newscn(), elf_nextscn() - get section information for ELF files SYNOPSIS
Command: [flag]... file... [library]... DESCRIPTION
These functions provide indexed and sequential access to the sections associated with the ELF descriptor elf. If the program is building a new file, it is responsible for creating the file's ELF header before creating sections; see elf_getehdr(3E). returns a section descriptor, given an index into the file's section header table. Note the first "real" section has index 1. Although a program can get a section descriptor for the section whose index is 0 the undefined section), the section has no data and the section header is "empty" (though present). If the specified section does not exist, an error occurs, or elf is null, returns a null pointer. creates a new section and appends it to the list for elf. Because the section is required and not "interesting" to applications, the library creates it automatically. Thus the first call to for an ELF descriptor with no existing sections returns a descriptor for section 1. If an error occurs or elf is null, returns a null pointer. After creating a new section descriptor, the program can use to retrieve the newly created, "clean" section header. The new section descriptor will have no associated data (see elf_getdata(3E)). When creating a new section in this way, the library updates the member of the ELF header and sets the bit for the section (see elf_flag(3E)). If the program is building a new file, it is responsible for creating the file's ELF header (see elf_getehdr(3E)) before creating new sections. takes an existing section descriptor, scn, and returns a section descriptor for the next higher section. One may use a null scn to obtain a section descriptor for the section whose index is 1 (skipping the section whose index is If no further sections are present or an error occurs, returns a null pointer. takes an existing section descriptor, scn, and returns its section table index. If scn is null or an error occurs, returns EXAMPLES
An example of sequential access appears below. Each pass through the loop processes the next section in the file; the loop terminates when all sections have been processed. scn = 0; while ((scn = elf_nextscn(elf, scn)) != 0) { /* process section */ } SEE ALSO
