MINCORE(2)		    BSD	System Calls Manual		    MINCORE(2)

NAME
     mincore --	get advice about use of	memory

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <sys/mman.h>

     int
     mincore(const void	*addr, size_t len, char	*vec);

DESCRIPTION
     The mincore() system call allows a	process	to obtain information about
     whether pages are core resident.  Here the	current	core residency of the
     pages is returned in the character	array vec, with	a value	of 1 meaning
     that the page is in-core.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, mincore() returns 0 and vec is	updated	to re-
     flect the page status.  Otherwise a value of -1 is	returned and error is
     set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     [EINVAL]		The virtial address range specified by the addr	and
			len arguments is not valid.

     [EFAULT]		The vec	argument points	to an illegal address.

SEE ALSO
