SYNOPSIS


.In gelf.h GElf_Cap * gelf_getcap Elf_Data *data int ndx GElf_Cap *cap int gelf_update_cap Elf_Data *data int ndx GElf_Cap *cap

DESCRIPTION

These convenience functions are used to retrieve and update class-dependent
.Vt Elf32_Cap or
.Vt Elf64_Cap information.

Argument data is an
.Vt Elf_Data descriptor associated with a section of type SHT_SUNW_cap. Argument ndx is the index of the entry being retrieved or updated. The class-independent
.Vt GElf_Cap structure is described in gelf(3).

Function gelf_getcap retrieves the class-dependent entry at index ndx in data buffer data and copies it to the destination pointed to by argument cap after translation to class-independent form.

Function gelf_update_cap converts the class-independent entry pointed to by argument cap to class-dependent form, and writes it to the entry at index ndx in the data buffer described by argument data. Function gelf_update_cap signals an error if any of the values in the class-independent representation exceeds the representable limits of the target type.

RETURN VALUES

Function gelf_getcap returns the value of argument cap if successful, or NULL in case of an error. Function gelf_update_cap returns a non-zero value if successful, or zero in case of an error.

ERRORS

These functions may fail with the following errors:
[ELF_E_ARGUMENT] Arguments data or cap were NULL.
[ELF_E_ARGUMENT] Argument ndx was less than zero or larger than the number of entries in the data descriptor.
[ELF_E_ARGUMENT] Data descriptor data was not associated with a section of type SHT_SUNW_cap.
[ELF_E_RANGE] A value was not representable in the target type.
