NAME
       list_devices - list allocatable devices

SYNOPSIS
       list_devices [-s] [ -U uid] -l [device]

       list_devices [-s] [ -U uid] -n [device]

       list_devices [-s] [ -U uid] -u [device]

DESCRIPTION
       The  list_devices  utility  lists the allocatable devices in the system
       according to specified qualifications.

       The device and all device special files associated with the device  are
       listed.  The device argument is optional and, if it is not present, all
       relevant devices are listed.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -l [device]     Lists the pathname(s) of the device special files asso-
                       ciated with the device that are allocatable to the cur-
                       rent process. If device is given, lists only the  files
                       associated with the specified device.



       -n [device]     Lists  the  pathname(s) of device special files associ-
                       ated with the device that are allocatable to  the  cur-
                       rent process but are not currently allocated. If device
                       is given, lists only the  files  associated  with  that
                       device.



       -s              Silent. Suppresses any diagnostic output.



       -u [device]     Lists  the pathname(s) of device special files, associ-
                       ated with the device that are allocated to the owner of
                       the  current process. If device is given, list only the
                       files associated with that device.



       -U uid          Uses the user ID uid instead of the real user ID of the
                       current process when performing the list_devices opera-
                       tion.  Only  a  user  with  the  solaris.devices.revoke
                       authorization can use this option.
