MREMAP(2)                 NetBSD System Calls Manual                 MREMAP(2)


NAME
mremap -- re-map a virtual memory address
LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/mman.h> void * mremap(void *oldp, size_t oldsize, void *newp, size_t newsize, int flags);
DESCRIPTION
The mremap() function resizes the mapped range (see mmap(2)) starting at oldp and having size oldsize to newsize. The following arguments can be OR'ed together in the flags argument: MAP_ALIGNED(n) The allocation should be aligned to the given bound- ary, i.e. ensure that the lowest n bits of the address are zero. The parameter n should be the base 2 loga- rithm of the desired alignment (e.g., to request alignment to 16K, use 14 as the value for n). The alignment must be equal to or greater than the plat- form's page size as returned by sysconf(3) with the _SC_PAGESIZE request. MAP_FIXED newp is tried and mremap() fails if that address can't be used as new base address for the range. Otherwise, oldp and newp are used as hints for the position, fac- toring in the given alignment.
RETURN VALUES
mremap() returns the new address or MAP_FAILED, if the remap failed.
HISTORY
The mremap() system call appeared in NetBSD 5.0. It was based on the code that supports mremap() compatibility for Linux binaries.
COMPATIBILITY
The semantics of mremap() differ from the one provided by glibc on Linux in that the newp argument was added and a different set of flags are implemented.
