       getconfig - get configuration information for the Xorg server


       getconfig [option ...]


       getconfig is a programatic interface that is used by the Xorg server to
       get configuration information about video hardware when operating with-
       out an xorg.conf file.

       This  implementation  of  getconfig is written in perl.  It processes a
       prioritized and ordered list of  rules  supplied  internally  and  from
       meta-configuration  files.   The  rules are in the form of perl expres-
       sions.  getconfig writes to standard output the xorg.conf-style config-
       uration data specified by the last highest priority rule that evaluates
       to true.  Information about the format of the meta-configuration  files
       can be found in the getconfig(5x) manual page.


       -I search-path
               Specify  the search path to use for meta-config files.  search-
               path is a comma-separated list of directories to search.   Each
               directory  in the search path is searched for files with a .cfg
               suffix.  Each such file is opened and checked for a valid  sig-
               nature  string.   Rules are read from files with a valid signa-
               ture string and appended to the list of rules to evaluate.   If
               no  search path is specified, only the internally supplied con-
               figuration rules will be used.

       -D      Enable debugging output.

       -V      Print out the version information and exit.

       -X      Xorg-version Specify the  Xorg  version  in  numeric  (integer)

       -b subsys-id
               Specify the PCI subsystem ID of the video device.

       -c class
               Specify the PCI class of the video device.

       -d device-id
               Specify the PCI devide ID of the video device.

       -r revision
               Specify the PCI revision of the video device.

       -s subsysvendor-id
               Specify the PCI subsystem vendor ID of the video device.

       -v vendor-id
               Specify the PCI vendor ID of the video device.


       .cfg files located in the search path.  The search path typically spec-
       ified by the Xorg server is:


       where <modulepath> is the Xorg server’s module search path.

       was  written  by  David H. Dawes, with the support of X-Oz Technologies
       for XFree86.
