ldgetname - retrieve symbol name for object file symbol table entry
char *ldgetname (ldptr, symbol)
ldgetname returns a pointer to the name associated with symbol as a
string. The string is contained in a static buffer. Because the buffer
can be overwritten by later calls to ldgetname, the caller must copy the
buffer if the name is to be saved.
If the name cannot be retrieved, ldgetname returns NULL (defined in
<stdio.h>) for an object file. This occurs when:
o the string table cannot be found
o the name's offset into the string table is beyond the end of the
Typically, ldgetname is called immediately after a successful call to
ldtbread. ldgetname retrieves the name associated with the symbol table
entry filled by ldtbread.
The program must be loaded with the object file access routine library
ldclose(3X), ldopen(3X), ldtbseek(3X), ldtbread(3X), ldfcn(4).
