NAMEelf_hash — compute a hash value for a string
LIBRARYELF Access Library (libelf, -lelf)
SYNOPSIS#include < libelf.h>
elf_hash( const char *name);
DESCRIPTIONFunction elf_hash() computes a portable hash value for the null terminated string pointed to by argument name.
The hash value returned is will be identical across machines of different architectures. This allows hash tables to be built on one machine and correctly used on another of a different architecture. The hash value returned is also guaranteed not to be the bit pattern of all ones (~0UL).
IMPLEMENTATION NOTESThe library internally uses unsigned 32 bit arithmetic to compute the hash value.
