3.2.2.10 bfd_elf_find_section

Synopsis
 
struct elf_internal_shdr *bfd_elf_find_section (bfd *abfd, char *name);
Description
Helper functions for GDB to locate the string tables. Since BFD hides string tables from callers, GDB needs to use an internal hook to find them. Sun's .stabstr, in particular, isn't even pointed to by the .stab section, so ordinary mechanisms wouldn't work to find it, even if we had some.
