SYSARCH(2)                OpenBSD Programmer's Manual               SYSARCH(2)

     sysarch - architecture-depenent system call

     #include <machine/sysarch.h>

     sysarch(int number, char *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 pro-
     grams.  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.
