SYSARCH(2) MidnightBSD System Calls Manual SYSARCH(2)

NAME

sysarch — architecture-dependent system call

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, −lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <machine/sysarch.h>

int

sysarch(int number, void *args);

DESCRIPTION

The sysarch() system call performs the architecture-dependent function specified by number with the arguments specified by the args pointer. The args argument is a pointer to a structure defining the actual arguments of the function. Symbolic constants and argument structures for the architecture-dependent functions can be found in the header file <machine/sysarch.h>.

The sysarch() system call should never be called directly by user programs. Instead, they should access its functions using the architecture-dependent library.

RETURN VALUES

See the manual pages for specific architecture-dependent system calls for information about their return values.
