Getting the list of IOCTLS in the kernel.

Sometime back I was helping one of my friends in looking for all the IOCTLs supported by the kernel. Well we did not find the info we were looking for and thus thought to write a perl script to get all the IOCTLS supported by the kernel. Here it is, simple script to scan through the code and give you a list:

#!/usr/bin/perl —

@files = `grep -r \” _IO\” /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/linux-2.6.20/* |grep define ioctls_grep`;
open (DAT, \”ioctls_grep\”) ||die \”could not open ioctls_grep\”;
@files = DAT;
my %ioctls_numbers;
print \”Grep completed..\\n\”;
open (DAT, \”ioctls_numbers_found\”);

foreach (@files)
($file, $line) = split(/:/);
print \”$file\\n\\t\”;
$_ = $line;
($junk, $name, $test) = split;
$temp = $test;
if ($temp =~ m/^_IORW/) { print \” Read/Write :: $name $test\\n\”;}
elsif ($temp =~ m/^_IOR/) { print \” Read :: $name $test\\n\”;}
elsif ($temp =~ m/^_IOW/){ print \” Write :: $name $test\\n\”;}
elsif ($temp =~ m/^_IO/) {print \” IOCTLS :: $name $test\\n\”;}
else {
print \”$name $test\\n\”;
if ($test =~ m/^0x/ ){
$ioctls_numbers{$name} = $test;
print DAT \”$name \\t\\t\\t– $test in file $file\\n\”


for $keys (keys %ioctls_numbers)
print \”$keys — $ioctls_numbers{$keys}\\n\”;
