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  lan-
       guage  programs,	 however, the syntax #include <filename.h> or #include
       <sys/filename.h>	should be used.

       Because the operating system now	allows the existence of	multiple  file
       system types, there are several instances of multiple manual pages with
       the same	name. These pages all display the name of the FSType to	 which
       they  pertain, in the form name_	fstype at the top of the page. For ex-
       ample, fs_ufs(4).
