EJECT(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		      EJECT(1)

NAME
     eject -- Eject removable media

SYNOPSIS
     eject [options] _device|mount-point_

DESCRIPTION
     Eject is used to control removable	media devices.	Either a device	name
     (with or without a	precending "/dev/"), or	a mount	point as listed	in
     "/etc/fstab" may be specified to select the device	to eject.  If no
     device is specified, the default device, "/etc/acd0" is used.

     If	the device is currently	mounted	at one or more mount points, all are
     unmounted before the eject	is performed.  If any unmount fails, the eject
     is	aborted, and the mounts	are NOT	re-established.

     Only devices listed in "/usr/local/etc/eject.allow" can be	ejected.  The
     file format is one	entry per line,	and shell-style	wildcards (See
     "sh(1)") are allowed.  Lines beginning with `#' and blank lines are con-
     sidered comments.

OPTIONS
     --h, ---help
		 Display a summary of command usage.

     --v, ---verbose
		 Verbose mode.	eject displays arguably	useful information
		 about what it's doing.

     --d, ---default
		 Display the default device.

     --t, ---trayclose
		 Close the CDROM tray.	( Not supported	by all CDROM drives. )

     --n, ---noop
		 No operation.	Display	the normal output, but don't actually
		 eject or close	the device.  Often used	in conjunction with -v
		 for debugging.

     Eject the default device:
	   eject

     Eject a device name:
	   eject cdrom
	   eject acd0
	   eject /dev/cdrom

     Eject using mount point:
	   eject /cdrom

     Close tray:
	   eject -t /cdrom
	   eject --trayclose /cdrom

EXIT STATUS

     sysexits(3) for an	explanation of exit codes.
