CARDCTL(8)                                             CARDCTL(8)

NAME
       cardctl - PCMCIA card control utility

SYNOPSIS
       cardctl [-V] command [socket]
       cardctl   [-c config]   [-f schemefile]  [-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 avail-
       able.  If it is executed by an  unpriviledged  user,  only
       the informational commands are accessible.

COMMANDS
       status
           Display the current socket status flags.

       config
           Display the socket configuration, including power set-
           tings, interrupt and I/O window settings, and configu-
           ration registers.

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

       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 schemefile
              Use the specified file to keep track of the current
              configuration scheme, instead  of  /var/run/pcmcia-
              scheme.

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