    192192dashes. To complicate matters, sometimes an element can also contain 
    193193dashes. This complicates the parsing algorithm, but is not too confusing 
    194 for humans (we hope!). The chip descriptions are equal to those 
    195 appearing in 
    196 .IR /proc/sys/dev/sensors , 
    197 but may contain the  
    198 .I * 
    199 wildcard.

    201196The first element is the name of the chip type. Sometimes a single driver 
     
    206201 
    207202The second element is the name of the bus. This is either 
    208 .I isa 
     203.IR isa , 
     204.I pci 
    209205or 
    210206.IR i2c-N , 
     
    216212.I * 
    217213for this element, or only for the number of the I2C bus 
    218 (which means 'any non-ISA bus'). 
    219  
    220 The third element is the hexadecimal address. This is a number between 0 and 
    221 ffff for the ISA bus, and between 0 and 7f for an I2C bus. You may substitute 
     214(which means 'any I2C bus'). 
     215 
     216The third element is the hexadecimal address of the chip. The valid range 
     217depends on the bus type. You may substitute 
    222218the wildcard operator
