MINHERIT(2)			     BSD System Calls Manual			      MINHERIT(2)

     minherit -- control the inheritance of pages

     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <sys/mman.h>

     minherit(caddr_t addr, size_t len, int inherit);

     The minherit() system call changes the specified pages to have the inheritance characteris-
     tic inherit, which can be set to VM_INHERIT_NONE, VM_INHERIT_COPY, or VM_INHERIT_SHARE.  Not
     all implementations will guarantee that the inheritance characteristic can be set on a page
     basis; the granularity of changes may be as large as an entire region.

     The minherit() function first appeared in OpenBSD.
