NAME

       comedi_get_subdevice_flags - properties of subdevice

SYNOPSIS

       #include <comedilib.h>

       int comedi_get_subdevice_flags(comedi_t * device, unsigned int subdevice);

DESCRIPTION

       The function comedi_get_subdevice_flags returns a bitfield describing the capabilities of
       the specified subdevice subdevice of the Comedi device device. If there is an error, -1 is
       returned, and the Comedilib error value is set.
