NAME
       Intro, intro - introduction to file formats

DESCRIPTION
       This  section  outlines  the  formats of various files. The C structure
       declarations for the file formats are given where applicable.  Usually,
       the headers containing these structure declarations can be found in the
       directories /usr/include or /usr/include/sys. For inclusion in  C  lan-
       guage  programs,  however, the syntax #include <filename.h> or #include
       <sys/filename.h> should be used.
