Seeks to line number entries of a section of a common object file.
Object File Access Routine Library (libld.a)
int ldlseek ( ldPointer, SectionIndex)
unsigned short SectionIndex;
int ldnlseek (ldPointer, SectionName)
The ldlseek subroutine seeks to the line number entries of the section specified by the SectionIndex parameter of the common object file currently associated with the ldPointer parameter. The first section has an index of 1.
The ldnlseek subroutine seeks to the line number entries of the section specified by the SectionName parameter.
Both subroutines determine the object mode of the associated file before seeking to the relocation entries of the indicated section.
|ldPointer||Points to the LDFILE structure that was returned as the result of a successful call to the ldopen or ldaopen subroutine.|
|SectionIndex||Specifies the index of the section whose line number entries are to be seeked to.|
|SectionName||Specifies the name of the section whose line number entries are to be seeked to.|
The ldlseek and ldnlseek subroutines return a SUCCESS or FAILURE value.
The ldlseek subroutine fails if the SectionIndex parameter is greater than the number of sections in the object file. The ldnlseek subroutine fails if there is no section name corresponding with the SectionName parameter. Either function fails if the specified section has no line number entries or if it cannot seek to the specified line number entries.
These subroutines are part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
