TYPES(5)                      File Formats Manual                     TYPES(5)



NAME
       types - primitive system data types

SYNOPSIS
       #include <&lt;sys/types.h>&gt;

DESCRIPTION
       The  data  types  defined  in  the include file are used in UNIX system
       code; some data of these types are accessible to user code:

       The form daddr_t is used for disk addresses  except  in  an  i-node  on
       disk, see fs(5).  Times are encoded in seconds since 00:00:00 GMT, Jan-
       uary 1, 1970.  The major and minor parts of a device code specify  kind
       and  unit  number  of a device and are installation-dependent.  Offsets
       are measured in bytes from the beginning of a file.  The label_t  vari-
       ables  are  used  to  save the processor state while another process is
       running.
