NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for eject (netbsd section 1)

EJECT(1)			   BSD General Commands Manual				 EJECT(1)

     eject -- eject a floppy disk, cdrom or tape

     eject [-fv] [-l | -L | -U] [-t device-type] [-d] device

     eject -n

     The eject program ejects a medium from the specified device.  It can also load a cdrom in
     the drive if this operation is supported by the hardware.	The device argument specifies a
     device either by its full path name (identified by a /dev/ prefix), or by one of the built-
     in nicknames.  If the medium contains a file system that is currently mounted, eject will
     attempt to unmount the file system before ejecting.

     The following options are available:

     -d   Deprecated.

     -f   Force the eject operation without attempting to unmount any file systems first.

     -l   Load media in the drive (only supported for the cdrom device type).

     -L   Lock the media into the drive (but see BUGS below).

     -n   List the built-in nicknames on standard output.

     -t device-type
	  Specify the device type.  The argument must be one of diskette, floppy, cdrom, disk, or
	  tape.  This option is necessary when ejecting a device for which no built-in knowledge
	  is available.

     -U   Unlock the media from the drive.

     -v   Display some of the actions taken on standard output.

     Most disk drivers automatically lock the media on the first open and unlock it on the last
     close, making 'eject -L' almost useless, since when it closes the device, it gets unlocked
