NAME
       lssf - list a special file

SYNOPSIS
       special_file ...

DESCRIPTION
       lists  information  about  a special file.  For each special_file name,
       determines the major number of the special file and whether it is block
       or  character (using stat(2)).  It then scans the system	for the	device
       that is associated with the special file.  When the  device  is	found,
       the  minor  number of the special file is decoded.  A mnemonic descrip-
       tion of the minor number	is printed on standard output along  with  the
       hardware	 path  (i.e.,  address)	 of the	device.	 Mnemonics used	to de-
       scribe the fields are closely related to	the  options  used  with  (see
       mksf(1M)).

DIAGNOSTICS
       Most  diagnostic	 messages from are self	explanatory.  Listed below are
       some messages deserving further clarification.  Warnings	allow to  con-
       tinue.

   Warnings
       There is	no information about the device	in the kernel.
		 The  special  file  is	not usable.  Use to remove the special
		 file (see rmsf(1M)).

       The major number	associated with	the special file is not	in the kernel.
		 Use to	add the	appropriate driver to  the  kernel  (see  con-
		 fig(1M)).

       The indicated device driver or device class
		 is  not present in the	kernel.	 An of a special file pointing
		 to an unusable	device fails.  To make the device usable,  the
		 appropriate  device  driver and/or device class must be added
		 to the	input file  and	 a  new	 kernel	 generated  (see  con-
		 fig(1M)).   If	the device is no longer	needed,	should be used
		 to remove the special files and update

       The file	is not associated with an I/O device.

EXAMPLES
       Suppose a special file is created with the  command  The	 command  then
       produces:

AUTHOR
       was developed by	HP.

FILES
       I/O system special file

       I/O system configuration	database
