FETCH(9)                 BSD Kernel Developer's Manual                FETCH(9)

NAME
     fetch, fubyte, fusword, fuswintr, fuword -- fetch data from user-space

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

     int
     fubyte(const void *base);

     int
     fusword(void *base);

     int
     fuswintr(void *base);

     long
     fuword(const void *base);

DESCRIPTION
     The fetch functions are designed to copy small amounts of data from user-
     space.

     The fetch routines provide the following functionality:

     fubyte()    Fetches a byte of data from the user-space address base.

     fusword()   Fetches a short word of data from the user-space address
                 base.

     fuswintr()  Fetches a short word of data from the user-space address
                 base.  This function is safe to call during an interrupt con-
                 text.

     fuword()    Fetches a word of data from the user-space address base.

RETURN VALUES
     The fetch functions return the data fetched or -1 on failure.
