udev_device_ref, udev_device_unref, udev_device_get_dictionary, udev_device_get_udev, udev_device_get_action, udev_device_get_devnum, udev_device_get_devnode, udev_device_get_driver, udev_device_get_subsystem, udev_device_get_kptr, udev_device_get_major, udev_device_get_minor, udev_device_get_property_value -- udev device functions


Device attribute and event library (libdevattr, -ldevattr)


#include <devattr.h> struct udev_device * udev_device_ref(struct udev_device *udev_device); void udev_device_unref(struct udev_device *udev_device); struct udev * udev_device_get_udev(struct udev_device *udev_device); prop_dictionary_t udev_device_get_dictionary(struct udev_device *udev_device); const char * udev_device_get_action(struct udev_device *udev_device); dev_t udev_device_get_devnum(struct udev_device *udev_device); const char * udev_device_get_devnode(struct udev_device *udev_device); const char * udev_device_get_driver(struct udev_device *udev_device); const char * udev_device_get_subsystem(struct udev_device *udev_device); uint64_t udev_device_get_kptr(struct udev_device *udev_device); int32_t udev_device_get_major(struct udev_device *udev_device); int32_t udev_device_get_minor(struct udev_device *udev_device); const char * udev_device_get_property_value(struct udev_device *udev_device, const char *key);


The udev_device_ref() and udev_device_unref() functions increase or decrease the reference count on a udev_device object respectively. When the reference count drops to 0, the object is automatically destroyed. The udev_device_ref() function returns the same object that was passed in. The udev_device_get_udev() function returns the udev context in which the udev_device was created. The udev_device_get_dictionary() function returns the raw prop_dictionary(3) dictionary associated to the given udev_device. It returns NULL when no dictionary is associated to the device. The udev_device_get_action() function returns the action, as a string, related to the udev_device. Possible actions are "add" for attach events, "remove" for detach events and "none" if the udev_device is not associated with a particular event. The udev_device_get_devnum(), udev_device_get_devnode(), udev_device_get_driver(), udev_device_get_subsystem(), udev_device_get_kptr(), udev_device_get_major() and udev_device_get_minor() function return some information of the device corresponding to the udev_device. The udev_device_get_devnum(), function returns the device number. The udev_device_get_devnode() function returns the full path in the system to the given device. The returned string and errno are the same as for the devname(3) function. The udev_device_get_driver() and udev_device_get_subsystem() functions return the driver name and subsystem of the device if available. Otherwise they return NULL. The udev_device_get_kptr(), udev_device_get_major() and udev_device_get_minor() functions return the kernel pointer to the associated cdev_t, the major and the minor number, respectively. The udev_device_get_property_value() function returns the value for the udev_device for the specified property key. It returns NULL if the specified udev_device has no property for key.
