       spec  which  can  be found in /usr/local/share/doc/hal/spec/hal-spec.html depending on the
       distribution.

       --udi  The UDI (Unique Device Identifier) of the device object.

       --key  The name of the property.

       --hex  Show int32/uint64 values in hex (without a leading 0x).

       --verbose
	      Verbose output.

       --help Print out usage.

       --version
	      Print the version.

RETURN VALUE
       If both the property and device object exists the value of the property is printed on std-
       out and the program will exit with exit code 0. Otherwise the exit code will be non-zero.

BUGS
       Please  send  bug  reports  to  either  the  distribution  or  the  HAL	mailing list, see
