kldconfig -- display or modify the kernel module search path SYNOPSIS
kldconfig [-dfimnUv] [-S sysctlname] [path ...] kldconfig -r DESCRIPTION
The kldconfig utility displays or modifies the search path used by the kernel when loading modules using the kldload(8) utility or the kldload(2) syscall. The following options are available: -d Remove the specified paths from the module search path. -f Do not display a diagnostic message if a path specified for adding is already present in the search path, or if a path specified for removing is not present in the search path. This may be useful in startup/shutdown scripts for adding a path to a file system which is still not mounted, or in shutdown scripts for unconditionally removing a path that may have been added during startup. -i Add the specified paths to the beginning of the search path, not to the end. This option can only be used when adding paths. -m Instead of replacing the module search path with the set of paths specified, ``merge'' in the new entries. -n Do not actually change the module search path. -r Display the current search path. This option cannot be used if any paths are also specified. -S sysctlname Specify the sysctl name to use instead of the default kern.module_path. -U ``Unique-ify'' the current search path - if any of the directories is repeated one or more times, only the first occurrence remains. This option implies -m. -v Verbose output: display the new module search path. If the path has been changed, and the -v flag is specified more than once, the old path is displayed as well. FILES
/boot/kernel, /boot/modules, /modules The default module search path used by the kernel. EXIT STATUS
The kldconfig utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs. SEE ALSO

Module::Util - Module name tools and transformations SYNOPSIS
use Module::Util qw( :all ); $valid = is_valid_module_name $potential_module; $relative_path = module_path $module_name; $file_system_path = module_fs_path $module_name; # load module at runtime require module_path $module_name; # (see perldoc -f require for limitations of this approach.) DESCRIPTION
This module provides a few useful functions for manipulating module names. Its main aim is to centralise some of the functions commonly used by modules that manipulate other modules in some way, like converting module names to relative paths. EXPORTS
Nothing by default. Use the tag :all to import all functions. FUNCTIONS
is_valid_module_name $bool = is_valid_module_name($module) Returns true if $module looks like a module name, false otherwise. module_is_loaded $abs_path_or_hook = module_is_loaded($module) Returns the %INC entry for the given module. This is usually the absolute path of the module, but sometimes it is the hook object that loaded it. See perldoc -f require Equivalent to: $INC{module_path($module)}; Except that invalid module names simply return false without generating warnings. find_installed $path = find_installed($module, [@inc]) Returns the first found installed location of the given module. This is always an absolute filesystem path, even if it is derived from a relative path in the include list. By default, @INC is searched, but this can be overridden by providing extra arguments. # look in @INC $path = find_installed("Module::Util") # look only in lib and blib/lib, not in @INC $path = find_installed("Module::Util", 'lib', 'blib/lib') Note that this will ignore any references in the search path, so it doesn't necessarily follow that the module cannot be successfully "require"d if this returns nothing. all_installed @paths = all_installed($module, [@inc]) Like find_installed, but will return multiple results if the module is installed in multiple locations. find_in_namespace @modules = find_in_namespace($namespace, [ @inc ]) Searches for modules under a given namespace in the search path (@INC by default). find_in_namespace("My::Namespace"); Returns unique installed module names under the namespace. Note that this does not include the passed-in name, even if it is the name of an installed module. Use of an empty string as the namespace returns all modules in @inc. module_path $path = module_path($module) Returns a relative path in the form used in %INC. Which I am led to believe is always a unix file path, regardless of the platform. If the argument is not a valid module name, nothing is returned. module_fs_path $path = module_fs_path($module) Like module_path, but returns the path in the native filesystem format. On unix systems, this should be identical to module_path. path_to_module $module = path_to_module($path) Transforms a relative unix file path into a module name. # Print loaded modules as module names instead of paths: print join(" ", map { path_to_module($_) } keys %INC Returns undef if the resulting module name is not valid. fs_path_to_module $module = fs_path_to_module($fs_path) Transforms relative filesystem paths into module names. # on windows: fs_path_to_module("Module\") # returns Module::Util Returns undef if the resulting module is not valid. module_path_parts @parts = module_path_parts($module_name) Returns the module name split into parts suitable for feeding to File::Spec->catfile. module_path_parts('Module::Util') # returns ('Module', '') If the module name is invalid, nothing is returned. canonical_module_name $module = canonical_module_name($module); Returns the canonical module name for the given module. This basically consists of eliminating any apostrophe symbols and replacing them with '::'. canonical_module_name("Acme::Don't"); # Acme::Don::t Returns undef if the name is not valid. BUGS
None known. Please report any found. SEE ALSO
