PARAM(3) Library Functions Manual PARAM(3) NAME param - common parameters SYNOPSIS #include <sys/param.h> size MAX(size a, size b); size MIN(size a, size b); DESCRIPTION The <sys/param.h> header includes some common definitions and macros specific to NetBSD. The header is perhaps best characterized as a kernel equivalent of <sys/types.h>. The following list summarizes the provided definitions and macros. ⊕ First and foremost, the header defines the version of NetBSD. This is defined as #define __NetBSD_Version__ 599004800 /* 5.99.48 */ The general format is "MMmmrrpp00", where `MM' and `mm' denote the major and minor version, respectively, `rr' is provided for compatibility, and `pp' defines the patch level. ⊕ Common utility macros such as MAX() and MIN() as well as more specific macros such as STACK(9), ctod(9), mstohz(9), roundup(9), and setbit(9). ⊕ Numerous miscellaneous definitions such as limits, constants for the kernel memoryallocators(9), scale factors used by the scheduler, kthread(9) priorities, and many others. ⊕ Definitions provided for historical and compatibility reasons. Examples range from definitions such as "#define BSD" to old priority levels used in the kernel.
