ELF_GETSHNUM(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual	       ELF_GETSHNUM(3)

     elf_getshnum — return the number of sections in an ELF file

     library “libelf”

     #include <libelf.h>

     elf_getshnum(Elf *elf, size_t *shnum);

     This function is deprecated.  Please use elf_getshdrnum(3) instead.

     Function elf_getshnum() retrieves the number of ELF sections associated
     with descriptor elf and stores it into the location pointed to by argu‐
     ment shnum.

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

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

     Function elf_getshnum() 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.
