NAME

       cardctl - PCMCIA card control utility

SYNOPSIS

       cardctl [-V] command [socket]
       cardctl [-c config] [-f scheme] [-s stab] scheme [name]

DESCRIPTION

       Cardctl is used to monitor and control the state of PCMCIA sockets.  If
       a socket number is specified, the command will be applied to  just  one
       socket; otherwise, all sockets will be affected.

       Cardctl  is  also  used to select between multiple PCMCIA configuration
       schemes.  The current scheme  name  is  passed  to  the  device  option
       scripts as part of the ‘‘device address’’, so the scripts can use it to
       choose between different setups.

       If cardctl is executed by root, all commands are available.  If  it  is
       executed  by an unpriviledged user, only the informational commands are
       accessible.

       Some commands may not work or give misleading results if cardmgr is not
       running.

COMMANDS

       status
           Display the current socket status flags.

       config
           Display   the   socket  configuration,  including  power  settings,
           interrupt and I/O window settings, and configuration registers.

       ident
           Display  card   identification   information,   including   product
           identification  strings,  manufacturer  ID  codes,  and function ID
           codes.

       info
           Much like the ident command, but  its  output  is  formatted  as  a
           series  of  Bourne-stype  shell  variable  definitions  for  use in
           scripts.

       suspend
           Shut down and then disable power for a socket.

       resume
           Restore power to a socket, and re-configure for use.

       reset
           Send a reset signal to a socket, subject to approval by any drivers
           already bound to the socket.

       eject
           Notify  all client drivers that this card will be ejected, then cut
           power to the socket.

       insert
           Notify all client drivers that this card has just been inserted.

       scheme
           If no scheme name is given, cardctl will display the current PCMCIA
           configuration  scheme.   If  a  scheme  name is given, cardctl will
           unconfigure all PCMCIA devices, and reconfigure for the new scheme.

OPTIONS

       -V     Show version information and exit.

       -c config
              Look  for the card configuration database and card configuration
              scripts in the specified directory, instead of /etc/pcmcia.

       -f scheme
              Use  the  specified  file  to  keep   track   of   the   current
              configuration  scheme,  instead  of /var/lib/misc/scheme.  (If a
              /var/lib/pcmcia directory exists, /var/lib/pcmcia/scheme is used
              instead.)

       -s stab
              Read current socket information from the specified file, instead
              of /var/run/stab.
