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.


     -e rulebase
           Specify  rulebase  as  the  file  containing   nawk(1)
           pattern-action statements.

     -r rootdir
           Specify rootdir as the directory under which  dev  and
           devices  will  be found, rather than the standard root
           directory /.
