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
     sysarch() performs the architecture-dependent function specified by number with the argu-
     ments specified by the args pointer.  args 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 function calls for information
     about their return values.

HISTORY
     The sysarch() function call appeared in NetBSD 1.0.
