description

specifications

sysfsutils project contains a set of utilities built upon sysfs, a new virtual filesystem in Linux kernel versions 2.5+ that exposes a system's device tree. The current version of sysfsutils includes the following:

· libsysfs - The library's purpose is to provide a consistent and stable interface for querying system device information exposed through sysfs.
· systool - A utility built upon libsysfs that lists devices by bus, class, and topology.
· A number of utilities that demonstrate API usage in the "test" directory of the source tarball.
· A comprehensive testsuite.

Since v2.0 sysfsutils has a number of changes to the way attributes are populated. Another significant change is the removal of struct sysfs_directory.

Udev has been shipping with a scaled down version of libsysfs since late February. Udevstart is now 35% faster with the newer version.

What's New in This Release:

· Added two APIs that were missing in 2.0.0.
· Added C++ compilation support
· Added subsystem support in sysfs_device and some minor fixes.
