SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Obsolete system calls.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       These calls return structures which have grown since their first implementation,
 but old executables must continue  to  receive  old  smaller

       Current	executables  should be linked with current libraries and never
       use these calls.

CONFORMING TO    [Toc]    [Back]

       These calls are unique to Linux and should not be used at  all  in  new
