NAMEsysarch — architecture-dependent system call
LIBRARYStandard C Library (libc, -lc)
SYNOPSIS#include < machine/sysarch.h>
sysarch( int number, void *args);
DESCRIPTIONThe 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 VALUESSee the manual pages for specific architecture-dependent system calls for information about their return values.
