DI_PROM_PROP_DATA(3DEVINFO) Device Information Library Functions

NAME


di_prom_prop_data, di_prom_prop_next, di_prom_prop_name - access PROM
device information

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -ldevinfo [ library... ]
#include <libdevinfo.h>

di_prom_prop_t di_prom_prop_next(di_prom_handle_t ph, di_node_t node,
di_prom_prop_t prom_prop);


char *di_prom_prop_name(di_prom_prop_t prom_prop);


int di_prom_prop_data(di_prom_prop_t prom_prop, uchar_t **prop_data);


PARAMETERS


node
Handle to a device node in the snapshot of kernel device
tree.


ph
PROM handle


prom_prop
Handle to a PROM property.


prop_data
Address of a pointer.


DESCRIPTION


The di_prom_prop_next() function obtains a handle to the next property on
the PROM property list associated with node. If prom_prop is
DI_PROM_PROP_NIL, the first property associated with node is returned.


The di_prom_prop_name() function returns the name of the prom_prop
property.


The di_prom_prop_data() function returns the value of the prom_prop
property. The return value is a non-negative integer specifying the size
in number of bytes in prop_data.


All memory allocated by these functions is managed by the library and
must not be freed by the caller.

RETURN VALUES


The di_prom_prop_data() function returns the number of bytes in prop_data
and prop_data is updated to point to a byte array containing the property
value. If 0 is returned, the property is a boolean property and the
existence of this property indicates the value is true.


The di_prom_prop_name() function returns a pointer to a string that
contains the name of prom_prop.


The di_prom_prop_next() function returns a handle to the next PROM
property. DI_PROM_PROP_NIL is returned if no additional properties exist.

ERRORS


See openprom(4D) for a description of possible errors.
