 dlpi_drv(4)                                                     dlpi_drv(4)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      dlpi_drv.h - definitions of interfaces for device drivers to interact
      with DLPI

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The <dlpi_drv.h> header file contains definitions of structures and
      function prototypes that are required by networking device drivers to
      interact with DLPI (data link provider interface).

      The header file contains interfaces that could be used by tightly
      coupled and loosely coupled drivers.  DLPI serves as a sole interface
      to DLS users for tightly coupled drivers.  Whereas, a loosely coupled
      driver depends on DLPI only to provide information to userspace
      command lanscan(1M) for display purposes.

      All loosely coupled and tightly coupled drivers must include this

      The manuals page dlpi(7) provides an overview of HP-UX's DLPI.  The
      header file <dlpi.h> contains DLPI requests; see dlpi(4).  The header
      file <dlpi_ext.h> provides HP-specific extensions to DLPI 2.0
      standards; see dlpi_ext(4).

 WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]
      The interfaces provided in <dlpi_drv.h> may change in next HP-UX

 AUTHOR    [Toc]    [Back]
      <dlpi_drv.h> was created by HP.
