NAME
       oldfstat, oldlstat, oldstat, oldolduname, olduname - obsolete system calls

SYNOPSIS
       Obsolete system calls.

DESCRIPTION
       The  Linux  2.0	kernel	implements  these  calls to support old executables.  These calls
       return structures which have grown since their first implementation, but  old  executables
       must continue to receive old smaller structures.

       Current executables should be linked with current libraries and never use these calls.

CONFORMING TO
       These calls are unique to Linux and should not be used at all in new programs.

SEE ALSO
       fstat(2), lstat(2), stat(2), uname(2), unimplemented(2)
