SYSARCH(2) System Calls Manual SYSARCH(2)

architecture-dependent system call

#include <machine/sysarch.h>

sysarch(int number, void *args);

sysarch() performs the architecture-dependent function specified by number with the arguments specified by the args pointer. args is a pointer to a structure defining the actual arguments of the function. Symbolic constants and argument structures for the architecture-dependent functions can be found in the header file <machine/sysarch.h>.

The sysarch() system call should never be called directly by user programs. Instead, they should access its functions using the architecture-dependent library.

See the manual pages for specific architecture-dependent function calls for information about their return values.

The sysarch() function call appeared in NetBSD 0.9A.
