Functions

uint8_t* readelfsection(FILE *f, char *name, uint64_t *size, Fhdr *fp);
void freeelf(Fhdr *fp);

Example

Fhdr fhdr;
FILE *f;
uint8_t *buf;
uint64_t len;

f = fopen("/bin/ls", "rb");
if (f == NULL)
	return -1;

buf = readelfsection(f, ".text", &len, &fhdr);
if (buf == NULL)
	return -1;

// ...

freeelf(&fhdr);
