NAMEsysarch - architecture-dependent system call
SYNOPSISIn machine/sysarch.h Ft int Fn sysarch int number void *args
DESCRIPTIONThe Fn sysarch system call performs the architecture-dependent function specified by Fa number with the arguments specified by the Fa args pointer. The Fa args argument 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 In machine/sysarch.h .
The Fn sysarch system call should never be called directly by user programs. Instead, they should access its functions using the architecture-dependent library.
