NAME         top

       scmp_sys_resolver - Resolve system calls

SYNOPSIS         top

       scmp_sys_resolver [-h] [-a ARCH ] [-t] SYSCALL_NAME |

DESCRIPTION         top

       This command resolves both system call names and numbers with
       respect to the given architecture supplied in the optional ARCH
       argument.  If the architecture is not supplied on the command
       line then the native architecture is used.  If the "-t" argument
       is specified along with a system call name, then the system call
       will be translated as necessary for the given architecture.  The
       "-t" argument has no effect if a system call number is specified.

       In some combinations of architecture and system call, a negative
       system call number will be displayed.  A negative system call
       number indicates that the system call is not defined for the
       given architecture and is treated in a special manner by
       libseccomp depending on the operation.

       -a ARCH
              The architecture to use for resolving the system call.
              Valid ARCH values are "x86", "x86_64", "x32", "arm",
              "aarch64", "loongarch64", "m68k", "mips", "mipsel",
              "mips64", "mipsel64", "mips64n32", "mipsel64n32",
              "parisc", "parisc64", "ppc", "ppc64", "ppc64le", "s390",
              "s390x", "sheb" and "sh".

       -t     If necessary, translate the system call name to the proper
              system call number, even if the system call name is
              different, e.g. socket(2) on x86.

       -h     A simple one-line usage display.

EXIT STATUS         top

       Returns zero on success, errno values on failure.
