NAME

     sysarch -- architecture-dependent system call

LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

     #include <machine/sysarch.h>

     int
     sysarch(int number, void *args);

DESCRIPTION

     The 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 VALUES

     See the manual pages for specific architecture-dependent system calls for
     information about their return values.
