INDIR(2)			       System Calls Manual				 INDIR(2)

NAME
       indir - indirect system call

ASSEMBLER
       (indir = 0.)
       sys indir; call

       The system call at the location call is executed.  Execution resumes after the indir call.

       The  main  purpose  of  indir is to allow a program to store arguments in system calls and
       execute them out of line in the data segment.  This preserves the purity of the text  seg-
       ment.

       If  indir is executed indirectly, it is a no-op.  If the instruction at the indirect loca-
       tion is not a system call, indir returns error code EINVAL; see intro(2).
