NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     devd.conf -- configuration file for devd(8)

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

   General Syntax
     A devd(8) configuration consists of two general features, statements and
     comments.	All statements end with a semicolon.  Many statements can contain
 substatements, which are also terminated with a semicolon.

     The following statements are supported:

     options  specifies various options and parameters for the operation of

     attach   specifies various matching criteria and actions to perform when
	      a newly attached device matches said criteria.

     detach   specifies various matching criteria and actions to perform when
	      a newly detached device matches said criteria.

     nomatch  specifies various matching criteria and actions to perform when
	      no device driver currently loaded in the kernel claims a (new)

     Statements may occur in any order in the configuration file, and may be
     repeated as often as required.  Further details on the syntax and meaning
     of each statement and their substatements are explained below.

     Comments may appear anywhere that whitespace may appear in a configuration
 file.  To appeal to programmers of all kinds, they can be written in
     C, C++, or shell/Perl constructs.

     C-style comments start with the two characters `/*' (slash, star) and end
     with `*/' (star, slash).  Because they are completely delimited with
     these characters, they can be used to comment only a portion of a line or
     to span multiple lines.

     C-style comments cannot be nested.  For example, the following is not
     valid because the entire comment ends with the first `*/':

	   /* This is the start of a comment.
	      This is still part of the comment.
	   /* This is an incorrect attempt at nesting a comment. */
	      This is no longer in any comment. */

     C++-style comments start with the two characters `//' (slash, slash) and
     continue to the end of the physical line.	They cannot be continued
     across multiple physical lines; to have one logical comment span multiple
     lines, each line must use the `//' pair.  For example:

	   // This is the start of a comment.  The next line
	   // is a new comment, even though it is logically
	   // part of the previous comment.
