NAME
       Intro, intro - introduction to file formats

DESCRIPTION
       This section outlines the formats of various files. The C structure
       declarations for the file formats are given where applicable. Usually,
       the headers containing these structure declarations can be found in the
       directories /usr/include or /usr/include/sys. For inclusion in C
       language programs, however, the syntax #include <filename.h> or
       #include <sys/filename.h> should be used.
