IEEE1284_REF(3) 						     Functions							   IEEE1284_REF(3)

ieee1284_ref, ieee1284_unref - modify a port's reference count SYNOPSIS
#include <ieee1284.h> int ieee1284_ref(struct parport *port); int ieee1284_unref(struct parport *port); DESCRIPTION
If you want to free the port list from ieee1284_find_ports but open one of the ports later on, you will need to prevent it from being destroyed in ieee1284_free_ports. Each port has a reference count, and you can use ieee1284_ref to increment it and ieee1284_unref to decrement it. If you use ieee1284_ref at any stage, you must later call ieee1284_unref to relinquish the extra reference. If you do not do this, the resources associated with the port will not be cleaned up. If you have not previously used ieee1284_ref on a port, you must not use ieee1284_unref on it. RETURN VALUE
These functions return the number of references held after the increment or decrement. SEE ALSO

IEEE1284_GET_IRQ_FD(3)						     Functions						    IEEE1284_GET_IRQ_FD(3)

ieee1284_get_irq_fd, ieee1284_clear_irq - interrupt notification SYNOPSIS
#include <ieee1284.h> int ieee1284_get_irq_fd(struct parport *port); int ieee1284_clear_irq(struct parport *port, unsigned int *count); DESCRIPTION
If the port has a configured interrupt line and the port type supports interrupt notification, it is possible to obtain a file descriptor that may be used for select(2) or poll(2). Any event (readable, writable or exception) means that an interrupt has been triggered. No operations other than select or poll may be performed on the file descriptor. The port must be open in order to call ieee1284_get_irq_fd, and must be claimed when using select or poll. The caller must not close the file descriptor, and may not use it at all when the port is not claimed. When an interrupt has been detected, the caller must call ieee1284_clear_irq to clear the interrupt condition, at which point the number of interrupts raised can be obtained by supplying a non-NULLcount. RETURN VALUE
For ieee1284_get_irq_fd: If the return value is negative then it is an error code listed below. Otherwise it is a valid file descriptor. E1284_NOTAVAIL No such file descriptor is available. E1284_INVALIDPORT The port parameter is invalid (for instance, perhaps the port is not open). For ieee1284_clear_irq: E1284_OK The interrupt has been cleared. If count was not NULL the count of interrupts has been atomically stored to count and reset. E1284_NOTAVAIL The count parameter was not NULL but interrupt counting is not supported on this type of port. The interrupt has been cleared. E1284_SYS There was a problem clearing the interrupt. E1284_INVALIDPORT The port parameter is invalid (for instance, perhaps the port is not claimed). AUTHOR
