NAME         top

       sd_booted - Test whether the system is running the systemd init

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <systemd/sd-daemon.h>

       int sd_booted(void);

DESCRIPTION         top

       sd_booted() checks whether the system was booted up using the
       systemd init system.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On failure, this call returns a negative errno-style error code.
       If the system was booted up with systemd as init system, this
       call returns a positive return value, zero otherwise.

NOTES         top

       Functions described here are available as a shared library, which
       can be compiled against and linked to with the
       libsystemd pkg-config(1) file.

       Internally, this function checks whether the directory
       /run/systemd/system/ exists. A simple check like this can also be
       implemented trivially in shell or any other language.
