NAME
       getconfig - get configuration information for the Xorg server

SYNOPSIS
       getconfig [option ...]

DESCRIPTION
       getconfig is a programatic interface that is used by the	Xorg server to
       get configuration information about video hardware when operating with-
       out an xorg.conf	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 xorg.conf-style config-
       uration data specified by the last highest priority rule	that evaluates
       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      Xorg-version Specify the	 Xorg  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 devide 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.

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

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

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

       getconfig(5), Xorg(1), xorg.conf(5).

AUTHORS
       The Xorg	automatic configuration	support	and  the  getconfig  interface
       was  written  by	 David H. Dawes, with the support of X-Oz Technologies
       for XFree86.
