ELF_GETBASE(3ELF) ELF Library Functions ELF_GETBASE(3ELF)


NAME


elf_getbase - get the base offset for an object file

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lelf [ library ... ]
#include <libelf.h>

off_t elf_getbase(Elf *elf);


DESCRIPTION


The elf_getbase() function returns the file offset of the first byte of
the file or archive member associated with elf, if it is known or
obtainable, and -1 otherwise. A null elf is allowed, to simplify error
handling; the return value in this case is -1. The base offset of an
archive member is the beginning of the member's information, not the
beginning of the archive member header.
