.Lb libelf

SYNOPSIS


.In libelf.h off_t elf_rand Elf *archive off_t offset

DESCRIPTION

The elf_rand function causes the ELF descriptor archive to be adjusted so that the next call to elf_begin(3) will provide access to the archive member at byte offset offset in the archive. Argument offset is the byte offset from the start of the archive to the beginning of the archive header for the desired member.

Archive member offsets may be retrieved using the elf_getarsym(3) function.

RETURN VALUES

Function elf_rand returns offset if successful or zero in case of an error.

EXAMPLES

To process all the members of an archive use:
off_t off;
Elf *archive, *e;
...
cmd = ELF_C_READ;
archive = elf_begin(fd, cmd, NULL);
while ((e = elf_begin(fd, cmd, archive)) != (Elf *) 0)
{
        ... process ‘e’ here ...
        elf_end(e);

        off = ...new value...;         if (elf_rand(archive, off) != off) {                 ... process error ...         } } elf_end(archive);

To rewind an archive, use:

Elf *archive;
...
if (elf_rand(archive, SARMAG) != SARMAG) {
        ... error ...
}

ERRORS

Function elf_rand may fail with the following errors:
[ELF_E_ARGUMENT] Argument archive was null.
[ELF_E_ARGUMENT] Argument archive was not a descriptor for an ar(1) archive.
[ELF_E_ARCHIVE] Argument offset did not correspond to the start of an archive member header.
