NAME
       getconfig - get configuration information for the XFree86 server

SYNOPSIS
       getconfig [option ...]

DESCRIPTION
       getconfig  is  a	 programmatic  interface  that	is used	by the XFree86
       server to get configuration information about video hardware when oper-
       ating without an	XF86Config file.

       This  implementation  of	 getconfig is written in perl.	It processes a
       prioritized and ordered list of	rules  supplied	 internally  and  from
       meta-configuration  files.   The	 rules are in the form of perl expres-
       sions.  getconfig writes	to standard output the	XF86Config-style  con-
       figuration data specified by the	last highest priority rule that	evalu-
       ates to true.  Information about	the format of  the  meta-configuration
       files can be found in the getconfig(5) manual page.

OPTIONS
       -I search-path
	       Specify	the search path	to use for meta-config files.  search-
	       path is a comma-separated list of directories to	search.	  Each
	       directory  in the search	path is	searched for files with	a .cfg
	       suffix.	Each such file is opened and checked for a valid  sig-
	       nature  string.	 Rules are read	from files with	a valid	signa-
	       ture string and appended	to the list of rules to	evaluate.   If
	       no  search path is specified, only the internally supplied con-
	       figuration rules	will be	used.

       -D      Enable debugging	output.

       -V      Print out the version information and exit.

       -X XFree86-version
	       Specify the XFree86 version in numeric (integer)	form.

       -b subsys-id
	       Specify the PCI subsystem ID of the video device.

       -c class
	       Specify the PCI class of	the video device.

       -d device-id
	       Specify the PCI device ID of the	video device.

       -r revision
	       Specify the PCI revision	of the video device.

       -s subsysvendor-id
	       Specify the PCI subsystem vendor	ID of the video	device.

       -v vendor-id
	       Specify the PCI vendor ID of the	video device.

       -S sbus-path
	       Specify the SBUS	path of	the video device.

FILES
       .cfg files located in the search	path.  The search path typically spec-
       ified by	the XFree86 server is:

	   /etc/X11
	   /usr/X11R6/etc/X11
	   _modulepath_
	   /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/getconfig

       where _modulepath_ is the XFree86 server's module search	path.
