GPIB(4)			 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		       GPIB(4)

NAME
     gpib — General-Purpose Instrument Bus (GPIB) driver

SYNOPSIS
     Either of the pcii(4) or tnt4882(4) drivers use this driver as the back‐
     end.

DESCRIPTION
     The gpib driver provides support for driving an IEEE-488 bus, also called
     IEC-625 (or just "IEC bus"), or HP-IB (Hewlett Packard Instrument Bus),
     or GPIB (General Purpose Instrument Bus).	The device can become either a
     listener, talker, controller, and in particular a master controller on
     the bus.

FILES
     /dev/gpibNib   Main device node to access the driver.

     /dev/gpibNl    Listen-only entry to the driver.  When opening, an instru‐
		    ment can send data to this device on the bus in an unad‐
		    dressed mode, for example hard-copy printer data.

SEE ALSO

HISTORY
     The gpib driver was written by Poul-Henning Kamp, and first appeared in
     FreeBSD 5.4.
