SYSARCH(2)                    System Calls Manual                   SYSARCH(2)

NAME
     sysarch -- architecture-dependent system call

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;machine/sysarch.h>&gt;

     int
     sysarch(int number, void *args);

DESCRIPTION
     sysarch() performs the architecture-dependent function specified by
     number with the arguments specified by the args pointer.  args 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 function calls
     for information about their return values.

HISTORY
     The sysarch() function call appeared in NetBSD 1.0.

NetBSD 6.1.5                   October 11, 1993                   NetBSD 6.1.5
