dminfo - report information about a device entry in a device
     maps file


     dminfo [-v] [-a] [-f pathname]

     dminfo [-v] [-a] [-f pathname] -n dev -name...

     dminfo [-v] [-a] [-f pathname] -d dev -path...

     dminfo [-v] [-a] [-f pathname] -t dev -type...

     dminfo [-v] [-f pathname] -u dm -entry


     dminfo   reports   and   updates   information   about   the
     device_maps(4) file.


     The following options are supported

     -a    Succeed if any of the requested entries are found.  If
           used  with  -v,  all  entries that match the requested
           case(s) are printed.

     -d dev-path
           Search by dev-path. Search device_maps(4) for a device
           special pathname in the device_list field matching the
           dev-path argument. This option cannot be used with -n,
           -t or -u.

     -f pathname
           Use  a  device_maps  file  with  pathname  instead  of

     -n dev-name
           Search  by  dev-name.  Search  device_maps(4)  for   a
           device_name  field matching dev-name. This option can-
           not be used with -d, -t or -u.

     -t dev-type
           Search  by  dev-type.  Search  device_maps(4)  for   a
           device_type  field  matching  the given dev-type. This
           option cannot be used with -d, -n or -u.

     -u dm-entry
           Update the device_maps(4) file. This  option  is  pro-
           vided  to  add entries to the device_maps(4) file. The
           dm-entry must be a complete device_maps(4) file entry.
           The  dm-entry has fields, as in the  device_maps file.
           It uses the colon (:) as a field separator, and  white
           space  as  the  device_list  subfield  separators. The
           dm-entry is not made if any fields are missing, or  if
           the  dm-entry would be a duplicate. The default device
           maps file can be updated only by the super user.

     -v    Verbose. Print the requested  entry  or  entries,  one
           line  per entry, on the standard output. If no entries
           are specified, all are printed.
