OBSOLETE(2)                Linux Programmer's Manual               OBSOLETE(2)



NAME
       oldfstat,  oldlstat,  oldstat,  oldolduname, olduname - obsolete system
       calls

SYNOPSIS
       Obsolete system calls.

DESCRIPTION
       The Linux 2.0 kernel implements these calls to support old executables.
       These calls return structures which have grown since their first imple-
       mentation, but old executables must continue  to  receive  old  smaller
       structures.

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

CONFORMING TO
       These calls are unique to Linux and should not be used at  all  in(1,8)  new
       programs.
