I82365(3)                  Library Functions Manual                  I82365(3)



NAME
       i82365  -  Personal Computer Memory Card Interface Association (PCMCIA)
       device

SYNOPSIS
       bind -a #y /dev

       /dev/pcm0attr
       /dev/pcm0ctl
       /dev/pcm0mem
       /dev/pcm1attr
       /dev/pcm1ctl
       /dev/pcm1mem

DESCRIPTION
       The i82365 driver provides an interface to  an  Intel  82365-compatible
       PCMCIA  interface chip.  This chip supports up to 2 PCMCIA slots, 0 and
       1.  Reading pcm[01]attr  returns  the  contents  of  attribute  memory.
       Reading or writing pcm[01]mem reads or writes RAM on the card.  Reading
       pcm[01]ctl returns the card's status.

       This driver must be included to use PCMCIA devices such as  the  NE4100
       Ethernet  card.   The individual card drivers make calls to routines in
       the PCMCIA driver.

BUGS
       There is no driver for the Databook PCMCIA interface chip.
       The PCMCIA section of the system is new and less  reliable  than  other
       pieces of the system.  Also, its coverage of devices is spotty.
