ABIinfo - query information about MIPS ABI systems
ABIinfo provides a shell-level interface to determine whether a
particular MIPS ABI feature is supported by the operating system.
ABIinfo also provides the version of the MIPS Processor ABI Conformance
Guide to which the operating system conforms.
This interface allows a feature which will appear in a future Conformance
Guide to be supported by the host operating system prior to that system
becoming conformant with that Conformance Guide . It also allows
applications to determine whether features which are documented in the
Conformance Guide , but are not mandatory features, are implemented on a
particular host operating system.
The ABIinfo utility takes a selector string, which is an ASCII form of
the #define found in <ABIinfo.h>, as an argument indicating a query for a
software or hardware feature. If the feature is supported, an ASCII
representation of the version identifier is printed on the standard
output. The version identifiers and their meanings are listed in the
ABIinfo selector table.
Refer to the manual entry for ABIinfo(3C) for information about the
meaning of the individual parameters.
ABIinfo exits with a status of 0 if the feature represented by the
selector is supported, 1 if the feature is not supported, and 2 if the
selector is invalid.
The following command prints the Conformance Guide version supported by
the current environment:
