NAME

modnext – return the modid of the next kernel module

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/param.h>
#include <sys/module.h>

int
modnext(int modid);

int
modfnext(int modid);

DESCRIPTION

The modnext() system call returns the modid of the next kernel module (that is, the one after modid) or 0 if modid is the last module in the list.

If the modid value is 0, then modnext() will return the modid of the first module. The modfnext() system call must always be given a valid modid.

RETURN VALUES

The modnext() system call returns the modid of the next module (see DESCRIPTION) or 0. If an error occurs, errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS

The only error set by modnext() is ENOENT, which is set when modid refers to a kernel module that does not exist (is not loaded).

Our grievance is not just against Unix itself, but against the cult of Unix zealots who defend and nurture it. They take the heat, disease, and pestilence as givens, and, as ancient shamans did, display their wounds, some self-inflicted, as proof of their power and wizardry. We aim, through bluntness and humor, to show them that they pray to a tin god, and that science, not religion, is the path to useful and friendly technology.
