Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are members of

ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through technical committees

established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity. ISO and IEC

technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international organizations, governmental

and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work. In the field of information

technology, ISO and IEC have established a joint technical committee, ISO/IEC JTC 1.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of the joint technical committee is to prepare International Standards. Draft International

Standards adopted by the joint technical committee are circulated to national bodies for voting. Publication as

an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the national bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard ISO/IEC 23360-3 was prepared by the Free Standards Group and was adopted, under

the PAS procedure, by Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information technology, Subcommittee

SC 22, Programming languages, their environments and system software interfaces.

ISO/IEC 23360 consists of the following parts, under the general title Linux Standard Base (LSB) core

specification 3.1:
⎯ Part 1: Generic specification
⎯ Part 2: Specification for IA32 architecture
⎯ Part 3: Specification for IA64 architecture
⎯ Part 4: Specification for AMD64 architecture

ISO/IEC 23360-3:2006(E)
Introduction
The LSB defines a binary interface for application programs that are compiled
and packaged for LSB-conforming implementations on many different hardware
architectures. Since a binary specification includes information specific to

the computer processor architecture for which it is intended, it is not possible for

a single document to specify the interface for all possible LSB-conforming
implementations. Therefore, the LSB is a family of specifications, rather than a
single one.
This document should be used in conjunction with the documents it references.
This document enumerates the system components it includes, but descriptions
of those components may be included entirely or partly in this document, partly
in other documents, or entirely in other reference documents. For example, the
section that describes system service routines includes a list of the system
routines supported in this interface, formal declarations of the data structures
they use that are visible to applications, and a pointer to the underlying
referenced specification for information about the syntax and semantics of each

call. Only those routines not described in standards referenced by this document,

or extensions to those standards, are described in detail. Information
referenced in this way is as much a part of this document as is the information
explicitly included here.
The specification carries a version number of either the form x.y or x.y.z. This
version number carries the following meaning:
• The first number (x) is the major version number. All versions with the same
major version number should share binary compatibility. Any addition or
deletion of a new library results in a new version number. Interfaces marked
as deprecated may be removed from the specification at a major version
change.
• The second number (y) is the minor version number. Individual interfaces
may be added if all certified implementations already had that (previously
undocumented) interface. Interfaces may be marked as deprecated at a minor
version change. Other minor changes may be permitted at the discretion of the
LSB workgroup.

• The third number (z), if present, is the editorial level. Only editorial changes

should be included in such versions.

Since this specification is a descriptive Application Binary Interface, and not a

source level API specification, it is not possible to make a guarantee of 100%
backward compatibility between major releases. However, it is the intent that

those parts of the binary interface that are visible in the source level API will

remain backward compatible from version to version, except where a feature
marked as deprecated in one release may be removed from a future release.
Implementors are strongly encouraged to make use of symbol versioning to
permit simultaneous support of applications conforming to different releases of
this specification.
This is version 3.1 of the Linux Standard Base Core Specification. This

specification is part of a family of specifications under the general title "Linux

Standard Base (LSB) core specification 3.1". Developers of applications or
implementations interested in using the LSB trademark should see the Free
Standards Group Certification Policy for details.

I NTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO/IEC 23360-3:2006(E)
Linux Standard Base (LSB) core specification 3.1 —
Part 3:
Specification for IA64 architecture
1 Scope
1.1 General
The Linux Standard Base (LSB) defines a system interface for compiled
applications and a minimal environment for support of installation scripts. Its
purpose is to enable a uniform industry standard environment for high-volume
applications conforming to the LSB.
These specifications are composed of two basic parts: A common specification
("LSB-generic" or "generic LSB"), ISO/IEC 23360-1, describing those parts of the
interface that remain constant across all implementations of the LSB, and an
architecture-specific part ("LSB-arch" or "archLSB") describing the parts of the
interface that vary by processor architecture. Together, the LSB-generic and the
relevant architecture-specific part of ISO/IEC 23360 for a single hardware
architecture provide a complete interface specification for compiled application
programs on systems that share a common hardware architecture.
ISO/IEC 23360-1, the LSB-generic document, should be used in conjunction with

an architecture-specific part. Whenever a section of the LSB-generic specification

is supplemented by architecture-specific information, the LSB-generic document
includes a reference to the architecture part. Architecture-specific parts of
ISO/IEC 23360 may also contain additional information that is not referenced in
the LSB-generic document.
The LSB contains both a set of Application Program Interfaces (APIs) and
Application Binary Interfaces (ABIs). APIs may appear in the source code of
portable applications, while the compiled binary of that application may use the
larger set of ABIs. A conforming implementation provides all of the ABIs listed
here. The compilation system may replace (e.g. by macro definition) certain APIs

with calls to one or more of the underlying binary interfaces, and may insert calls

to binary interfaces as needed.

The LSB is primarily a binary interface definition. Not all of the source level APIs

available to applications may be contained in this specification.
1.2 Module Specific Scope
This is the Itanium™ architecture specific Core part of the Linux Standard Base
(LSB). This part supplements the generic LSB Core module with those interfaces
that differ between architectures.
Interfaces described in this part of ISO/IEC 23360 are mandatory except where
explicitly listed otherwise. Core interfaces may be supplemented by other
modules; all modules are built upon the core.

3.2 LSB Implementation Conformance
A conforming implementation is necessarily architecture specific, and must
provide the interfaces specified by both the generic LSB Core specification
(ISO/IEC 23360-1) and the relevant architecture specific part of ISO/IEC 23360.

Rationale: An implementation must provide at least the interfaces specified in these

specifications. It may also provide additional interfaces.
A conforming implementation shall satisfy the following requirements:
• A processor architecture represents a family of related processors which may
not have identical feature sets. The architecture specific parts of ISO/IEC
23360 that supplement this specification for a given target processor
architecture describe a minimum acceptable processor. The implementation
shall provide all features of this processor, whether in hardware or through
emulation transparent to the application.
• The implementation shall be capable of executing compiled applications
having the format and using the system interfaces described in this document.
• The implementation shall provide libraries containing the interfaces specified
by this document, and shall provide a dynamic linking mechan
