It's something that will be defined in unistd.h.  Depending on
the value you know if the system supports it always, you can turn
it on per application, or it's always on.

You know that this standard is freely available on internet?

There are other comments in about the usage of it.

Note that there also is a function call fdatasync() in the
Synchronized IO extention.
