ELF_GETSHSTRNDX(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	    ELF_GETSHSTRNDX(3)

     elf_getshstrndx, elf_setshstrndx — retrieve/update the index of the sec‐
     tion name string table

     library “libelf”

     #include <libelf.h>

     elf_getshstrndx(Elf *elf, size_t *ndxptr);

     elf_setshstrndx(Elf *elf, size_t ndx);

     Function elf_getshstrndx() retrieves the section index of the string ta‐
     ble containing section names from descriptor elf and stores it into the
     location pointed to by argument ndxptr.  Function elf_getshstrndx() is
     deprecated.  Please use elf_getshdrstrndx(3) instead.

     Function elf_setshstrndx() sets the index of the section name string ta‐
     ble to argument ndx.

     These routines allow applications to process both normal ELF objects and
     ELF objects that use extended section numbering uniformly.

     These functions return a non-zero value if successful, or zero in case of
     an error.

     These functions 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_ARGUMENT]  Argument ndx contained a value in the reserved range of
		       section indices.
