NAME
       pcilib - a library for accessing PCI devices

DESCRIPTION
       The  PCI library (also known as pcilib and libpci) is a portable library for accessing PCI
       devices and their configuration space.

ACCESS METHODS
       The library supports a variety of methods to access the configuration space  on	different
       operating systems. By default, the first matching method in this list is used, but you can
       specify override the decision (see the -A switch of lspci).

       linux-sysfs
	      The /sys filesystem on Linux 2.6 and newer. The standard header of the config space
	      is  available  to all users, the rest only to root. Supports extended configuration
	      space, PCI domains, VPD (from Linux  2.6.26),  physical  slots  (also  since  Linux
	      2.6.26) and information on attached kernel drivers.

       linux-proc
	      The  /proc/bus/pci  interface supported by Linux 2.1 and newer. The standard header
	      of the config space is available to all users, the rest only to root.

       intel-conf1
	      Direct hardware access via Intel configuration mechanism 1. Available on	i386  and
	      compatibles on Linux, Solaris/x86, GNU Hurd and Windows. Requires root privileges.

       intel-conf2
	      Direct  hardware	access via Intel configuration mechanism 2. Available on i386 and
	      compatibles on Linux, Solaris/x86, GNU Hurd and Windows. Requires root  privileges.
	      Warning: This method is able to address only the first 16 devices on any bus and it
	      seems to be very unreliable in many cases.

       fbsd-device
	      The /dev/pci device on FreeBSD. Requires root privileges.

       aix-device
	      Access method used on AIX. Requires root privileges.

       nbsd-libpci
	      The /dev/pci0 device on NetBSD accessed using the local libpci library.

       obsd-device
	      The /dev/pci device on OpenBSD. Requires root privileges.

       dump   Read the contents of configuration registers from a file specified in the dump.name
	      parameter. The format corresponds to the output of lspci -x.

PARAMETERS
       The library is controlled by several parameters. They should have sensible default values,
       but in case you want to do something unusual (or even something weird), you  can  override
       them (see the -O switch of lspci).

   Parameters of specific access methods
       dump.name
	      Name of the bus dump file to read from.

       fbsd.path
	      Path to the FreeBSD PCI device.

       nbsd.path
	      Path to the NetBSD PCI device.

       obsd.path
	      Path to the OpenBSD PCI device.

       proc.path
	      Path to the procfs bus tree.

       sysfs.path
	      Path to the sysfs device tree.

   Parameters for resolving of ID's via DNS
       net.domain
	      DNS domain containing the ID database.

       net.cache_name
	      Name of the file used for caching of resolved ID's.
