elf_getarsym - retrieve archive symbol table
cc [flag ...] file ... -lelf [library ...]
Elf_Arsym *elf_getarsym(Elf *elf, size_t *ptr);
elf_getarsym returns a pointer to the archive symbol table, if one is
available for the ELF descriptor elf. Otherwise, the archive doesn't
have a symbol table, an error occurred, or elf was null; elf_getarsym
then returns a null value. The symbol table is an array of structures
that include the following members.
unsigned long as_hash;
These members have the following semantics.
as_name A pointer to a null-terminated symbol name resides here.
as_off This value is a byte offset from the beginning of the archive
to the member's header. The archive member residing at the
given offset defines the associated symbol. Values in as_off
may be passed as arguments to elf_rand to access the desired
as_hash This is a hash value for the name, as computed by elf_hash.
If ptr is non-null, the library stores the number of table entries in the
location to which ptr points. This value is set to zero when the return
value is null. The table's last entry, which is included in the count,
has a null as_name, a zero value for as_off, and ~0UL for as_hash.
elf(3E), elf_getarhdr(3E), elf_hash(3E), elf_rand(3E), ar(4).
