GETRAWPARTITION(3)         Library Functions Manual         GETRAWPARTITION(3)

NAME
     getrawpartition - get the system "raw" partition

LIBRARY
     System Utilities Library (libutil, -lutil)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <util.h>

     int
     getrawpartition(void);

DESCRIPTION
     getrawpartition() returns the partition number ( `a' == 0, `b' == 1, ...)
     of the "raw" partition of the system's disks, or -1 in case of an error,
     setting the global errno variable.  The possible values for errno are the
     same as in sysctl(3).  The "raw" partition is defined as the partition
     which provides access to the entire disk, regardless of the disk's
     partition map.

SEE ALSO
     getmaxpartitions(3), sysctl(3)

HISTORY
     The getrawpartition() function call appeared in NetBSD 1.2.
