SYNOPSIS


.In sys/mman.h int getpagesizes size_t pagesize[] int nelem

DESCRIPTION

The getpagesizes function retrieves page size information from the system. When it is called with pagesize specified as NULL and nelem specified as 0, it returns the number of distinct page sizes that are supported by the system. Otherwise, it assigns up to nelem of the system-supported page sizes to consecutive elements of the array referenced by pagesize. These page sizes are expressed in bytes. In this case, getpagesizes returns the number of such page sizes that it assigned to the array.

RETURN VALUES

If successful, the getpagesizes function returns either the number of page sizes that are supported by the system or the number of supported page sizes that it assigned to the array referenced by pagesize. Otherwise, it returns the value~-1 and sets errno to indicate the error.

ERRORS

The getpagesizes function will succeed unless:
[EINVAL]
  The pagesize argument is NULL and the nelem argument is non-zero.
[EINVAL]
  The nelem argument is less than zero.
