For shared memory, look at /usr/include/sys/shm.h. For semaphores, see /usr/include/sys/sem.h. There is a lot of documentation available on the FreeBSD website; http://www.freebsd.org/docs/books.html In your case, the Developers' Handbook might come in handy. It is also available on the system btw, in /usr/share/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1 > Actually my current issue is the glibc i386 backtrace function from > execinfo.h.

It turns up a backtrace.h on my system. There is no execinfo.h file on my system. > Any ideas?
