OPENDEV(3)                OpenBSD Programmer's Manual               OPENDEV(3)

     opendev - short form device open routine

     #include <util.h>

     opendev(char *path, int oflags, int dflags, char **realpath);

     The opendev() function opens a device using the ``short form'' name.
     This is typically ``sd0'' or ``sd0c'', for instance, which will be ex-
     panded to /dev/rsd0c on most architectures.

     The oflags are the same as the flags passed to open(2).

     The dflags are specified by OR'ing the following values:

           OPENDEV_PART    attempt to open the raw partition during expansion
           OPENDEV_DRCT    attempt to open the device itself during expansion

     If realpath is not NULL, it is modified to point at the fully expanded
     device name.

     The opendev() return value and errors are the same as the return value
     and errors of open(2).


     The opendev() function first appeared in OpenBSD 1.2.

OpenBSD 2.6                      June 17, 1996                               1
