Revision 1400, 2.6 KB (checked in by mds, 12 years ago)

People send us a lot of 'sensors' output and without the algo/adap
info it would be a lot harder to diagnose things, or we would have to
ask them to use -V, so I'd rather not take that info out by default.
If you want to submit a -A patch (including a man page update) I'll
apply it.
thanks
mds

Here is my patch.

Some additional notes:

This patch also fixes a bug with the --unknown command line switch,
which was waiting for an argument it doesn't actually need.

I suggest a change for the manual page, from "Linux Programmer's Manual"
to "Linux User's Manual" (My patch doesn't change this... This is only a
suggestion.)

As usual, I am open to any suggestion, comment...
Thanks.

25.SH NAME
26sensors \- printing sensors information
27.SH SYNOPSIS
28.B sensors [
29.I options
30.B ] [
31.I chips
32.B ]
33
34.SH DESCRIPTION
35.B sensors
36is used to show the current readings of all sensor chips, and to set all limits
37as specified in the configuration file.
38
39.B sensors
40knows about certain chips, and outputs nicely formatted readings for them; but
41it can also display the information of unknown chips, as long as
42.I libsensors
43knows about them.
44
45.SH OPTIONS
46.IP "-c config-file"
47Specify a configuration file. If no file is specified, the name `sensors.conf'
48is used. If the name does not contain a directory slash, or this parameter
49is not present, the following path is examined:
50.BR /etc ,
51.BR /usr/lib/sensors ,
52.BR /usr/local/lib/sensors ,
53.BR /usr/lib ,
54.BR /usr/local/lib ,
55.B .
56.IP -h
57Prints a help text
58.IP -s
59Evaluates all `set' statements in the configuration file. You must probably
60be `root' to do this. If this parameter is not specified, no `set' statement
61is evaluated.
62.IP -A
63Do not show adapter and algorithm for each chipset.
64.IP -u
65Treats all chips as unknown ones. Output will be of much lower quality;
66this option is only added for testing purposes.
67.IP -v
68Returns the program version.
69.IP -f
70Prints the temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit instead of Celsius.
71.SH FILES
72.I /etc/sensors.conf
73.RS
74The system wide configuration file. See
75.BR sensors.conf (5)
76for further details.
