OFCTL(8)                    System Manager's Manual                   OFCTL(8)

NAME
     ofctl -- display the OpenPROM or OpenFirmware device tree

SYNOPSIS
     ofctl [-p] [-f file] [node]

DESCRIPTION
     ofctl provides an interface for displaying the OpenPROM or OpenFirmware
     device tree and node properties.  The ofctl program is only installed on
     supported platforms.

     Without any arguments, ofctl will dump the full tree.  When given the
     name of a specific node, ofctl will display that node and its child
     nodes.

     The options are as follows:

           -f file   On systems with OpenPROM, use file instead of the default
                     /dev/openprom.  On systems with OpenFirmware, use file
                     instead of the default /dev/openfirm.

           -p        Display each node's properties.

FILES
     /dev/openprom   The openprom device on systems with OpenPROM.

     /dev/openfirm   The openfirm device on systems with OpenFirmware.
