ELF_GETSHNUM(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual	       ELF_GETSHNUM(3)

NAME
     elf_getshnum -- return the	number of sections in an ELF file

LIBRARY
     ELF Access	Library	(libelf, -lelf)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <libelf.h>

     int
     elf_getshnum(Elf *elf, size_t *shnum);

DESCRIPTION
     This function is deprecated.  Please use elf_getshdrnum(3)	instead.

     Function elf_getshnum() retrieves the number of ELF sections associated
     with descriptor elf and stores it into the	location pointed to by argu-
     ment shnum.

     This routine allows applications to uniformly process both	normal ELF ob-
     jects, and	ELF objects that use extended section numbering.

RETURN VALUES
     Function elf_getshnum() returns a non-zero	value if successful, or	zero
     in	case of	an error.

ERRORS
     Function elf_getshnum() can fail with the following errors:

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  A NULL value was	passed in for argument elf.

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument	elf was	not for	an ELF file.

     [ELF_E_ARGUMENT]  Argument	elf lacks an ELF Executable header.
