NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ABIinfo - query information about MIPS ABI	systems

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     ABIinfo Selector-string

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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.

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     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.

EXAMPLE    [Toc]    [Back]

     The following command prints the Conformance Guide	version	supported by
     the current environment:

	  ABIinfo ABIinfo_BlackBook
