syscalls

SYNOPSIS

An extension that lists the system's supported syscalls (e.g. SYS_open, SYS_write, etc.). These are read from sys/syscall.h when the gem is built.

So far this has been tested on a couple of Linux machines; it should in principle work on other *nixes, but I haven't tested it.

Usage

require 'rubygems'
require 'syscalls'

include Syscalls
puts Process.pid         #=> (your process's pid)
puts syscall(SYS_getpid) #=> (your process's pid)
