SYNOPSIS


.In libelf.h unsigned int elf_flagdata Elf_Data *data Elf_Cmd cmd unsigned int flags unsigned int elf_flagehdr Elf *elf Elf_Cmd cmd unsigned int flags unsigned int elf_flagelf Elf *elf Elf_Cmd cmd unsigned int flags unsigned int elf_flagphdr Elf *elf Elf_Cmd cmd unsigned int flags unsigned int elf_flagscn Elf_Scn *scn Elf_Cmd cmd unsigned int flags unsigned int elf_flagshdr Elf_Scn *scn Elf_Cmd cmd unsigned int flags

DESCRIPTION

These functions are used to query, set or reset flags on data structures associated with an ELF file.

Arguments data, elf and scn denote the data structures whose flags need to be changed. These values are allowed to be NULL to simplify error handling in application code.

Argument cmd may have the following values:
ELF_C_CLR
  The argument flags specifies the flags to be cleared.
ELF_C_SET
  The argument flags specifies the flags to be set.

The argument flags is allowed to have the following flags set:
ELF_F_DIRTY Mark the associated data structure as needing to be written back to the underlying file. A subsequent call to elf_update(3) will resynchronize the library’s internal data structures.
ELF_F_LAYOUT
  This flag is only valid with the elf_flagelf API. It informs the library that the application will take responsibility for the layout of the file and that the library is not to insert any padding in between sections.

Marking a given data structure as "dirty" affects all of its contained elements. Thus marking an ELF descriptor elf with elf_flagelf elf ELF_C_SET ELF_F_DIRTY means that the entire contents of the descriptor are "dirty".

Using a value of zero for argument flags will return the current set of flags for the data structure being queried.

RETURN VALUES

These functions return the updated flags is successful, and zero if an error is detected.

ERRORS

These functions may fail with the following errors:
[ELF_E_ARGUMENT] An unsupported value was used for the cmd argument.
[ELF_E_ARGUMENT] Argument flags had unsupported flags set.
[ELF_E_ARGUMENT] The argument elf was not a descriptor for an ELF object.
[ELF_E_SEQUENCE] Function elf_flagehdr was called without an executable header being allocated.
[ELF_E_SEQUENCE] Function elf_flagphdr was called without a program header being allocated.
