NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       strmod_add - Add STREAMS modules and drivers

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <sys/stream.h>

       dev_t strmod_add(
               dev_t devno,
               struct streamtab *streamtab,
               struct streamadm *streamadm );

PARAMETERS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  device  number  (cdevsw  slot)  to  use when adding a
       driver. If NODEV is supplied, the first available slot  is
       used. This parameter is ignored for modules.  A pointer to
       the streamtab structure that contains  the  entry  points.
       The  actual streamtab structure has to be allocated permanently
 in the driver's data space (as specified by  System
       V Release 3.2).  A pointer to the streamadm structure that
       contains the administration  parameters  for  the  STREAMS
       module or driver. The actual streamadm structure is needed
       only for the duration of the call. It does not have to  be
       allocated permanently by the caller.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  strmod_add()  interface  is used to configure STREAMS
       modules and drivers into  the  kernel.  Specifically,  the
       function  allows  STREAMS  drivers  to add entry points in
       character device switch tables. Modules are added  to  the
       STREAMS modules switch.

       When  adding  a  driver  only, strmod_add() takes a device
       number, which is used to determine the device switch  slot
       for  the  entry points.  A STREAMS driver can supply NODEV
       instead of a device number.  In  this  case,  strmod_add()
       finds  the  first available device switch slot and returns
       the number actually used.  If  a  device  switch  slot  is
       already  in  use or if there are no slots available, NODEV
       is returned.

       The streamtab parameter is  a  pointer  to  a  traditional
       (System  V Release 3.2) streamtab structure. The structure
       contains pointers to entry points for  the  module's  read
       and write queue routines.

       The  streamadm  parameter points to a streamadm structure.
       The streamadm structure  provides  additional  information
       that is required for the Tru64 UNIX operating system.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The device number can be constructed from the major number
       through  the  makedev()  macro,  which   is   defined   in

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Upon   successful  completion,  strmod_add()  returns  the
       device number associated with  the  device  switch  table.
       Otherwise, it returns NODEV.
