GELF_GETDYN(3) Library Functions Manual GELF_GETDYN(3)

gelf_getdyn, gelf_update_dynread and update ELF dynamic entries

library “libelf”

#include <gelf.h>

GElf_Dyn *
gelf_getdyn(Elf_Data *data, int ndx, GElf_Dyn *dyn);

gelf_update_dyn(Elf_Data *data, int ndx, GElf_Dyn *dyn);

These convenience functions are used to retrieve and update class-dependent Elf32_Dyn or Elf64_Dyn information in the table of an ELF object.

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

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

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

Function gelf_getdyn() returns the value of argument dyn if successful, or NULL in case of an error. Function gelf_update_dyn() returns a non-zero value if successful, or zero in case of an error.

These functions may fail with the following errors:

Arguments data or dyn were NULL.
Argument ndx was less than zero or larger than the number of entries in the data descriptor.
Data descriptor data was not associated with a section of type SHT_DYNAMIC.
A value was not representable in the target type.
The Elf_Data descriptor denoted by argument data is associated with an ELF object with an unsupported version.
