gestalt SELECTORprocedure

Calls the Gestalt Manager with specified SELECTOR and returns an unsigned 32-bit integer.

The SELECTOR can be a string, symbol, or an unsigned integer. When a string or symbol it is converted to a Macintosh 4-byte character value - an unsigned 32-bit integer. The string length may not be greater than 4 but can be less; space padding will be performed.
