The driver provides an interface to the facility using the function. As an interface, the driver enables administrative tasks to be per- formed on STREAMS modules and drivers. By specifying the command parameter to the function, an administrator can configure information for a device, get information on a device, or check a list of modules. fildes is a file descriptor obtained by opening using command specifies the administrative function to be performed. arg points to a data structure. If command is or arg points to a struct of type If command is arg points to a struct of type Security Restrictions The is restricted to superusers or users with the privilege. See privileges(5) for more information about privileged access on systems that support fine-grained privileges. ioctl Commands The commands used to perform administrative functions on a STREAMS module or driver are specified by the following commands: Allows you to configure information for a device. The arg parameter points to a structure (defined in the header file), whose members are as follows: Allows you to specify the type of configuration to perform. This field can have the following values: Configures all minor devices. Configures a range of minor devices. Configures a single minor device. Clears the previous settings. Specify only the and fields when using this command. If a previous entry specified set the field to 0 (zero). If a previous entry was specified as set the field to the lowest minor device number in the range. Specifies the major device number. Specifies the minor device number. Specifies the range of minor devices. Specifies the number of modules to push. This number must be no more than which is defined in Additionally, this number must not exceed Specifies, in order, the array of modules to push. Lets you use the driver to obtain configuration information for a device by setting the and fields of the structure (see the command) to the major and minor device numbers of the device being queried. arg should point to a struct of type Upon successful completion, the structure contains all of the information used to configure the device. Values of 0 (zero) will appear in any unused entry in the module list. Enables you to check a list of modules. For example, you can determine if a specific module has been installed. The arg parameter points to a structure (defined in the header file), whose members are as follows: Specifies the number of entries you have allocated in an array. Points to the array of module names. The structure (also in the header file) is as follows: where specifies the array of module names. If the array is valid, the command returns a value of 0 (zero). If the array contains an invalid module name, the com- mand returns a value of 1. Upon failure, the command returns a value of -1. Notes As a STREAMS driver, also supports the normal STREAMS In this form, specify the field in the structure to either or The field points to the structure (see the command in the section). Refer to the streamio(7) reference page for further details. RETURN VALUE

If any of the following conditions occur, the commands return the corresponding value: The specified major/minor device number pair has already been configured. The arg parameter points outside the allocated address space. The major device number is invalid, the number of modules is invalid, or the list of module names is invalid. The device is not configured for This value is returned from a command. A internal data structure cannot be allocated. The major device does not represent a STREAMS driver. The field is less than the field when the command is or the minor device specified in a command does not exist.
