bdconfig


NAME
     bdconfig - configures the bd (buttons and dials) stream

SYNOPSIS
     bdconfig [startup] [off] [on] [term] [status] [verbose]

DESCRIPTION
     The bdconfig utility  is  responsible  for  configuring  the
     autopush  facility  and  defining  to the system what serial
     device to use for the bd stream.

OPTIONS
     If no  options  are  given,  then  an  interactive  mode  is
     assumed.  In this mode the current status is presented along
     with this usage line, and a series of interactive  questions
     asked to determine the user's desires.

     Root privilege is required to change the configuration.  The
     status  option does not require root privilege. bdconfig can
     be installed as a setuid root program.

     The non-interactive options below can be given in any order.

     term            Specify to the system the serial device  for
                     bd  use.  This  option implies the on option
                     unless the  off option is present.



     iff             Reconfigure the configured term for tty use.



     on              Reconfigure the configured term for  bd use.
                     If  term  has not been previously specified,
                     interactive questions are asked to determine
                     the user's desires.



     startup         Configure as was last configured before  the
                     system went down. This option is used by the
                     startup script, and precludes the use of the
                      on, off, and   term  options.  This  option
                     implies non-interactive mode.



     status          Emit the current configuration in  terms  of
                     the   words   used   as  options:  off,  on,
                     /dev/term/a, /dev/term/b, and so forth. This
                     option implies non interactive mode.

     verbose         bdconfig describes what it finds and what it
                     is doing.



EXIT STATUS
     The bdconfig utility returns 0  on  success,  1  on  general
     error, and 2 on argument error.

NOTES
     All  bdconfig  does  is  configure  the  AUTOPUSH  facility.
     bdconfig  does  not  actually  manipulate the serial port or
     stream in any way. Only  the  first  open  of  a  dismantled
     stream will see the effects of a previously run bdconfig.

     The bdconfig utility is silent  except  for  error  messages
     unless:

     a)       invoked with no args: status / usage line emitted



     b)       interactive modes are invoked as described above



     c)       the verbose option is used



BUGS
     The interface does not support more than  one   dialbox  and
     one  buttonbox,  both  of  which must  be on the same serial
     device.

     There should be a library routine to read, parse, and  vali-
     date  records  in  the  iu.ap  file,  so that bdconfig could
     return to the appropriate record in  iu.ap  as  the  default
     configuration.
