SYSARCH(2)		    BSD System Calls Manual		    SYSARCH(2)

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 argu‐
     ments 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 pro‐
     grams.  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.
