END(3)											   END(3)

       end, etext, edata - last locations in program

       extern end;
       extern etext;
       extern edata;

       These  names  refer  neither  to routines nor to locations with interesting contents.  The
       address of etext is the first address above the program text, edata above the  initialized
       data region, and end above the uninitialized data region.

       When  execution begins, the program break coincides with end, but many functions reset the
       program break, among  them  the	routines  of  brk(2),  malloc(3),  standard  input/output
       (stdio(3)), the profile (-p) option of cc(1), etc.  The current value of the program break
       is reliably returned by `sbrk(0)', see brk(2).

       brk(2), malloc(3)
