For those who suggested using truss, that's how I know what iostat is doing.
The best came from Justin Stringfellow <Justin.Stringfellow@Sun.COM>

        system("iostat -E")
        /* got get beer */

Final result: It looks like a lot of hassle to get a "generic" program for all
releases, so I'll stay with command line stuff.

Orignal post:
I'm trying to come up with a way to progammatically generate information about
disks, with such information as type (i.e. EMC, A3500, Photon, etc)and size. 
The "iostat -E" has this info along with too much other info. Does anyone know
how "iostat -E" gets the info (which calls, sub-commands)?
