DI_PROM_PROP_LOOKUP_BYTES(3DEVINFO) Device Information Library Functions


NAME


di_prom_prop_lookup_bytes, di_prom_prop_lookup_ints,
di_prom_prop_lookup_strings - search for a PROM property

SYNOPSIS


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

int di_prom_prop_lookup_bytes(di_prom_handle_t ph, di_node_t node,
const char *prop_name, uchar_t **prop_data);


int di_prom_prop_lookup_ints(di_prom_handle_t ph, di_node_t node,
const char *prop_name, int **prop_data);


int di_prom_prop_lookup_strings(di_prom_handle_t ph, di_node_t node,
const char *prop_name, char **prop_data);


PARAMETERS


node
Handle to device node in snapshot created by
di_init(3DEVINFO).


ph
Handle returned by di_prom_init(3DEVINFO).


prop_data
For di_prom_prop_lookup_bytes(), the address of a pointer to
an array of unsigned characters.

For di_prom_prop_lookup_ints(), the address of a pointer to
an integer.

For di_prom_prop_lookup_strings(), the address of pointer to
a buffer.


prop_name
The name of the property being searched.


DESCRIPTION


These functions return the value of a known PROM property name and value
type and update the prop_data pointer to reference memory that contains
the property value. All memory allocated by these functions is managed by
the library and must not be freed by the caller.

RETURN VALUES


If the property is found, the number of entries in prop_data is returned.
If the property is a boolean type, 0 is returned and the existence of
this property indicates the value is true. Otherwise, -1 is returned and
errno is set to indicate the error.


For di_prom_prop_lookup_bytes(), the number of entries is the number of
unsigned characters contained in the buffer pointed to by prop_data.


For di_prom_prop_lookup_ints(), the number of entries is the number of
integers contained in the buffer pointed to by prop_data.


For di_prom_prop_lookup_strings(), the number of entries is the number of
null-terminated strings contained in the buffer. The strings are stored
in a concatenated format in the buffer.

ERRORS


These functions will fail if::

EINVAL
Invalid argument.


ENXIO
The property does not exist.
