pccardctl – PCMCIA card control utility


pccardctl [-V] command [socket]

pccardctl is used to monitor and control the state of PCMCIA sockets. If a socket number is specified, the command will be applied to just one socket; otherwise, all sockets will be affected.

If pccardctl is executed by root, all commands are available. If it is executed by an unpriviledged user, only the informational commands are accessible.
