GETBSIZE(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		      GETBSIZE(3)

NAME
     getbsize -- get user block size

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <stdlib.h>

     char *
     getbsize(int *headerlenp, long *blocksizep);

DESCRIPTION
     The getbsize function determines the user's preferred block size based on the value of the
     ``BLOCKSIZE'' environment variable; see environ(7) for details on its use and format.

     The getbsize function returns a pointer to a NUL terminated string describing the block
     size, something like ``1K-blocks''.  If the headerlenp parameter is not NULL the memory ref-
     erenced by headerlenp is filled in with the length of the string (not including the termi-
     nating NUL).  If the blocksizep parameter is not NULL the memory referenced by blocksizep is
     filled in with block size, in bytes.

     If the user's block size is unreasonable, a warning message is written to standard error and
     the returned information reflects a block size of 512 bytes.

SEE ALSO
     df(1), du(1), ls(1), systat(1), environ(7)

HISTORY
     The getbsize function first appeared in 4.4BSD.
