display the list of major device numbers currently specified in the mdevice file
This script searches the mdevice file and
displays a list of the major device numbers already in use.
When installing a device driver with the Link Kit, you can use
majorsinuse to find an available major device number for
the driver. When you invoke the
program to modify the system configuration files with the new driver
information, use the -m option to indicate the
major device number of the driver.
The -j option to configure
performs a function similar to that of majorsinuse.
If you give the -j option with the next major keyword,
configure tells you the next available major device number.
majorsinuse is not part of any currently supported standard; it
is an extension of AT&T System V provided by
