 hilkbd(7) -- HP-HIL mapped keyboard driver
    HP-HIL, the Hewlett-Packard Human Interface Link, is the HewlettPackard standard for interfacing a personal computer, terminal, or workstation to its input devices. hilkbd supplies input from all mapped keyboards on a specified HP-HIL link. hilkbd returns mapped keycodes, not ASCII characters. ``Raw'' keycodes are the individual key downstrokes and upstrokes, and are different for each type of k...
 intro(7) -- introduction to device special files
    This section describes the device special files used to access HP peripherals and device drivers. The names of the entries are generally derived from the type of device being described (disk, terminal, etc.), not the names of the device special files or device drivers themselves. Characteristics of both the hardware device and the corresponding HP-UX device driver are discussed where applicable. T...
 iomap(7) -- physical I/O address mapping
    The iomap mechanism allows the mapping (thus direct access) of physical I/O addresses into the user process address space. For PARISC machines, the physical I/O address space begins at 0xf0000000 and extends to 0xffffffff. The special (device) files for iomap devices are character special files using the dynamic major number allocation scheme. The minor number for iomap devices is of the form: 0xA...
 ipmi(7) -- intelligent platform management interface (IPMI) driver
    The /dev/ipmi driver allows user processes to send IPMI messages to the BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) System Message Interface. The following data structures are provided in the header file for sending IPMI requests to the BMC.
 kmem(7) -- perform I/O on kernel memory based on symbol name.
    When used with a valid file descriptor for /dev/kmem (kmemfd), ioctl can be used to manipulate kernel memory. The specifics of this manipulation depend on the command given as follows: MIOC_READKSYM Read mirk_buflen bytes of kernel memory starting at the address for mirk_symname into mirk_buf. rks is a pointer to a mioc_rksym structure, defined below. MIOC_IREADKSYM Indirect read. Read sizeof(void...
 lan(7) -- network I/O card access information
    This manual entry gives a brief description on how to access the LAN device driver at Layer 2 (Data Link Layer) of the OSI architecture. The LAN device driver controls the various LAN interface cards (e.g, Ethernet/IEEE 802.3, FDDI, Token Ring) at Layer 1 (Physical Layer). The Data Link Provider Interface (DLPI) is the supported method for accessing the LAN device driver at Layer 2. DLPI is intend...
 ldterm(7) -- standard STREAMS terminal line discipline module
    ldterm is a STREAMS module that supplies the line discipline for streams-based terminal or pseudo-terminal device drivers. This module provides most of the functions of the general terminal interface described in termio(7). However, it does not perform the low-level device control functions specified by the c_cflag word defined by the POSIX termios structure or the System V termio structure (defin...
 lp(7) -- line printer
    This section describes capabilities provided by many line printers supported by various versions of the HP-UX operating system. A line printer is a character special device that may optionally have an interpretation applied to the data. If the character special device file has been created with the raw option (see the HP-UX System Administrator manuals for information about creating device files w...
 lvm(7) -- Logical Volume Manager (LVM)
    The Logical Volume Manager (LVM) is a subsystem for managing disk space. The HP LVM subsystem offers value-added features, such as mirroring (with the optional HP MirrorDisk/UX software), high availability (with the optional HP ServiceGuard software), and striping, that enhance availability and performance. Unlike earlier arrangements where disks were divided into fixed-sized sections, LVM allows ...
 mem(7) -- main memory
    mem is a special file that is an image of the main memory of the computer. It may be used, for example, to examine and patch the system. Byte addresses in mem are interpreted as physical memory addresses. References to non-existent locations cause errors to be returned. File kmem is the same as mem except that kernel virtual memory rather than physical memory is accessed. Please refer to kmem(7) f...
 modem(7) -- asynchronous serial modem line control
    This section describes the two modes of modem line control and the three types of terminal port access. It also discusses the effect of the bits of the termio structure that affect modem line control. The modem related ioctl(2) system calls are discussed at the end of the document.
 mt(7) -- magnetic tape interface and controls for stape and tape2
    This entry describes the behavior of HP magnetic tape interfaces and controls, including reel-to-reel, DDS, QIC, 8mm, and 3480 tape drives. The files /dev/rmt/* refer to specific raw tape drives, and the behavior of each given unit is specified in the major and minor numbers of the device special file.
 nfs(7) -- network file system
    The Network File System (NFS) allows a client node to perform transparent file access over the network. By using NFS, a client node operates on files residing on a variety of servers and server architectures, and across a variety of operating systems. File access calls on the client (such as read requests) are converted to NFS protocol requests and sent to the server system over the network. The s...
 null(7) -- null file
    Data written on a null special file is discarded. Reads from a null special file always return 0 bytes.
 pckt(7) -- Packet Mode module for STREAMS pty (pseudo-terminal)
    The Packet Mode feature for STREAMS pty devices allows the user process on the master side of the pty device to be informed of state changes in the pty. To enable Packet Mode in the STREAMS pty device, the user process must push the pckt module onto the master side of the pty with a call to the STREAMS I_PUSH ioctl(2) system call. When the pckt module is pushed onto a STREAMS pty master, certain S...
