ucblinks - adds /dev entries to give SunOS 4.x compatible
names to SunOS 5.x devices
/usr/ucb/ucblinks [-e rulebase] [-r rootdir]
ucblinks creates symbolic links under the /dev directory for
devices whose SunOS 5.x names differ from their SunOS 4.x
names. Where possible, these symbolic links point to the
device's SunOS 5.x name rather than to the actual /devices
ucblinks does not remove unneeded compatibility links; these
must be removed by hand.
ucblinks should be called each time the system is
reconfiguration-booted, after any new SunOS 5.x links that
are needed have been created, since the reconfiguration may
have resulted in more compatibility names being needed.
In releases prior to SunOS 5.4, ucblinks used a nawk rule-
base to construct the SunOS 4.x compatible names. ucblinks
no longer uses nawk for the default operation, although
nawk rule-bases can still be specifed with the -e option.
The nawk rule-base equivalent to the SunOS 5.4 default
operation can be found in /usr/ucblib/ucblinks.awk.
Specify rulebase as the file containing nawk(1)
Specify rootdir as the directory under which dev and
devices will be found, rather than the standard root
sample rule-base for compatibility links
