SYNOPSIS
     #include <libelf.h>

     int
     elf_getphnum(Elf *elf, size_t *phnum);

DESCRIPTION
     This function is deprecated.  Please use function elf_getphdrnum(3)
     instead.

     Function elf_getphnum() retrieves the number of ELF program headers asso‐
     ciated with descriptor elf and stores it into the location pointed to by
     argument phnum.

     This routine allows applications to uniformly process both normal ELF
     objects and ELF objects that use extended numbering.

     Function elf_getphnum() returns a non-zero value if successful, or zero
     in case of an error.

     Function elf_getphnum() 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_HEADER]    The ELF Executable Header associated with argument elf
		       was corrupt.

     [ELF_E_SECTION]   The section header at index SHN_UNDEF was corrupt.
