#include <libelf.h>

The elf_getarhdr() function returns a pointer to an archive member header for a descriptor elf. This descriptor must have been returned by a prior call to elf_begin(3), and must be a descriptor for a member inside an ar(1) archive.
Structure Elf_Arhdr includes the following members:
char * ar_name
A pointer to a null terminated string containing the translated name of the archive member.
char * ar_rawname
A pointer to a null terminated string containing the untranslated name for the archive member, including all ar(1) formatting characters and trailing white space.
time_t ar_date
The timestamp associated with the member.
uid_t ar_uid
The uid of the creator of the member.
gid_t ar_gid
The gid of the creator of the member.
mode_t ar_mode
The file mode of the member.
size_t ar_size
The size of the member in bytes.

This function returns a valid pointer to an Elf_Arhdr structure if successful, or NULL if an error is encountered.

Function elf_getarhdr() may fail with the following errors:
Argument elf was NULL.
Argument elf was not a descriptor for a member of an ar(1) archive.
