GELF_GETCAP(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual		GELF_GETCAP(3)

NAME
     gelf_getcap, gelf_update_cap -- read and update ELF capability informa-
     tion

LIBRARY
     ELF Access	Library	(libelf, -lelf)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <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-depen-
     dent Elf32_Cap or Elf64_Cap information.

     Argument data is an 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 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	argu-
     ment 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-in-
     dependent 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 num-
		       ber 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.
