       Intro, intro - introduction to file formats

       This  section  outlines	the  formats of	various	files. The C structure
       declarations for	the file formats are given where applicable.  Usually,

       directories /usr/include	or /usr/include/sys. For inclusion in  C  lan-
       guage  programs,	 however, the syntax #include <filename.h> or #include
       <sys/filename.h>	should be used.
