                     39: The

                     41: library function and the
                     42: .Xr sysctl 8
                     43: utility are used to get and set values of system variables, maintained
                     44: by the kernel.
                     45: The variables are organized in a tree and identified by a sequence of
                     46: numbers, conventionally separated by dots with the topmost identifier
                     47: at the left side.
                     48: The numbers have corresponding text names.
                     49: The
                     50: .Xr sysctlnametomib 3
                     51: function or the

                     53: argument to the
                     54: .Xr sysctl 8
                     55: utility can be used to convert the text representation to the
                     56: numeric one.
                     57: .Pp
                     58: The individual sysctl variables are described below, both the textual
                     59: and numeric form where applicable.
                     60: The textual names can be used as argument to the
                     61: .Xr sysctl 8
                     62: utility and in the file
                     63: .Pa /etc/sysctl.conf .
                     64: The numeric names are usually defined as preprocessor constants and
                     65: are intended for use by programs.
                     66: Every such constant expands to one integer, which identifies the
                     67: sysctl variable relative to the upper level of the tree.
                     68: See the
