SYSARCH(2)		  FreeBSD System Calls Manual		    SYSARCH(2)

NAME
     sysarch --	architecture-dependent system call

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <machine/sysarch.h>

     int
     sysarch(int number, void *args);

DESCRIPTION
     The sysarch() system call performs	the architecture-dependent function
     specified by number with the arguments specified by the args pointer.
     The args argument is a pointer to a structure defining the	actual argu-
     ments of the function.  Symbolic constants	and argument structures	for
     the architecture-dependent	functions can be found in the header file
     <machine/sysarch.h>.

     The sysarch() system call should never be called directly by user pro-
     grams.  Instead, they should access its functions using the architecture-
     dependent library.

RETURN VALUES
     See the manual pages for specific architecture-dependent system calls for
     information about their return values.
