GETPAGESIZES(3) 					   BSD Library Functions Manual 					   GETPAGESIZES(3)

NAME
getpagesizes -- get system page sizes
LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/mman.h> int getpagesizes(size_t pagesize[], int nelem);
DESCRIPTION
The getpagesizes() function retrieves page size information from the system. When it is called with pagesize specified as NULL and nelem specified as 0, it returns the number of distinct page sizes that are supported by the system. Otherwise, it assigns up to nelem of the sys- tem-supported page sizes to consecutive elements of the array referenced by pagesize. These page sizes are expressed in bytes. In this case, getpagesizes() returns the number of such page sizes that it assigned to the array.
RETURN VALUES
If successful, the getpagesizes() function returns either the number of page sizes that are supported by the system or the number of sup- ported page sizes that it assigned to the array referenced by pagesize. Otherwise, it returns the value -1 and sets errno to indicate the error.
ERRORS
The getpagesizes() function will succeed unless: [EINVAL] The pagesize argument is NULL and the nelem argument is non-zero. [EINVAL] The nelem argument is less than zero.
