ofwdump -- examine the Open Firmware device tree SYNOPSIS
ofwdump -a [-p | -P property] [-R | -S] ofwdump [-p | -P property] [-r] [-R | -S] [--] nodes DESCRIPTION
The ofwdump utility is used to examine the Open Firmware device tree. In the first synopsis form, the complete device tree is printed; in the second form, only the selected nodes will be examined. The following options are available: -a Print the complete device tree. -p Print all available properties. -P property Only print properties of the given name. -R Print properties in ``raw'' format, i.e., omit all headings and indentation and just write the property values unaltered to the standard output. This is intended to be used with the -P option to extract the value of a single property. -S Print properties as strings; this is analogous to the -R option, except that each property is only output to the first NUL char- acter, and that newline is appended to each. -r Recursively print all children of the specified nodes. EXAMPLES
Print the complete device tree: ofwdump -a Print the complete device subtree of the ``/pci'' node, including all available properties: ofwdump -pr /pci Print the ``compatible'' property of the ``/pci'' node as plain string: ofwdump -P compatible -S /pci SEE ALSO
