2.5.1 Initialization functions

These are the functions that handle initializing a BFD. bfd_init


unsigned int bfd_init (void);

This routine must be called before any other BFD function to initialize magical internal data structures. Returns a magic number, which may be used to check that the bfd library is configured as expected by users.

/* Value returned by bfd_init.  */

#define BFD_INIT_MAGIC (sizeof (struct bfd_section))
