STAB(5) 			       File Formats Manual				  STAB(5)

NAME
       stab - current PCMCIA socket status

DESCRIPTION
       The stab file is created by cardmgr and contains identification and device driver informa-
       tion for PCMCIA cards.  Each socket is described by one header line, followed  by  one  or
       more  device driver lines.  The header gives the card name as given in /etc/pcmcia/config.
       Device driver lines consist of a series of tab-separated fields.  The first field  is  the
       socket  number.	 The  second  field is the device class, which identifies which script in
       /etc/pcmcia is used to configure or shut down this device.  The third field is the  driver
       name.   The  fourth field is used to number devices when a single card has several devices
       associated with the same driver.  The fifth field is the device name, and  the  final  two
       fields are major and minor device numbers for this device, if appropriate.

       The  file  is  updated by cardmgr whenever a card is inserted or ejected, and when cardmgr
       receives a SIGHUP signal.

       The stab file will normally be created  in  /var/lib/pcmcia,  but  if  that  directory  is
       unavailable, it will be found in /var/run.
