    The following form allows you to view linux man pages.

    Command:

    modinfo

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           modinfo [ -0 ]  [ -F field ]  [ -k kernel ]  [ modulename|filename... ]
    
           modinfo -V
    
           modinfo -h
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           modinfo extracts information from the Linux Kernel modules given on the
           command  line. If the module name is not a filename, then the /lib/mod-
           ules/version directory is searched, as done by modprobe(8).
    
           modinfo by default lists each attribute of the module in form fieldname
           :  value,  for  easy  reading.  The  filename  is  listed  the same way
           (although it's not really an attribute).
    
           This version of modinfo can understand  modules  of  any  Linux  Kernel
           architecture.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -V --version
                  Print the modinfo version.
    
           -F --field
                  Only  print  this field value, one per line. This is most useful
                  for scripts. Field names  are  case-insenitive.   Common  fields
                  (which  may not be in every module) include author, description,
                  license, parm, depends, and alias.   There  are  often  multiple
                  parm, alias and depends fields. The special field filename lists
                  the filename of the module.
    
           -k kernel
                  Provide information about a kernel other than the  running  one.
                  This is particularly useful for distributions needing to extract
                  information from a newly installed (but not yet running) set  of
                  kernel  modules.  For  example,  you wish to find which firmware
                  files are needed by various modules in a new  kernel  for  which
                  you must make an initrd image prior to booting.
    
           -0 --null
                  Use  the  ASCII zero character to separate field values, instead
                  of a new line. This is useful for scripts, since a new line  can
                  theoretically appear inside a field.
    
           -a -d -l -p -n
                  These  are  shortcuts for author, description, license. parm and
                  filename respectively, to ease the transition from the old modu-
                  tils modinfo.
