How to get symbol information from .o file using BFD?


I need to get informations about symbols inside an .o file. So I'm trying it with BFD library (or whatever it is). I have this code:

Code:
#include <iostream>
#include <bfd.h>
using namespace std;

int main ()
{
        bfd *abfd       = 0;


        bfd_init ();

        abfd = bfd_openr ("mdl.o", "elf32-i386");

        if (abfd == 0) {
                cerr << "Can't initialize abfd!\n";
                return 1;
        }

        long needed = bfd_get_symtab_upper_bound (abfd);

        cout << "Needed = " << needed << endl;
}
- It causes segmentation fault error. I don't know why? Btw - I took it from "info bfd" if anyone's interested.

I'm on G++ 3.2.2....

Oxyd.
