OUTB(2)			   Linux Programmer's Manual		       OUTB(2)

NAME
       outb, outw, outl, outsb, outsw, outsl, inb, inw, inl, insb, insw, insl,
       outb_p, outw_p, outl_p, inb_p, inw_p, inl_p - port I/O

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/io.h>

       unsigned char inb(unsigned short int port);
       unsigned char inb_p(unsigned short int port);
       unsigned short int inw(unsigned short int port);
       unsigned short int inw_p(unsigned short int port);
       unsigned int inl(unsigned short int port);
       unsigned int inl_p(unsigned short int port);

       void outb(unsigned char value, unsigned short int port);
       void outb_p(unsigned char value, unsigned short int port);
       void outw(unsigned short int value, unsigned short int port);
       void outw_p(unsigned short int value, unsigned short int port);
       void outl(unsigned int value, unsigned short int port);
       void outl_p(unsigned int value, unsigned short int port);

       void insb(unsigned short int port, void *addr,
		  unsigned long int count);
       void insw(unsigned short int port, void *addr,
		  unsigned long int count);
       void insl(unsigned short int port, void *addr,
		  unsigned long int count);
       void outsb(unsigned short int port, const void *addr,
		  unsigned long int count);
       void outsw(unsigned short int port, const void *addr,
		  unsigned long int count);
       void outsl(unsigned short int port, const void *addr,
		  unsigned long int count);

DESCRIPTION
       This family of functions is used to do low-level port input and output.
       The out* functions do port output, the in* functions do port input; the
       b-suffix functions are byte-width  and  the  w-suffix  functions	 word-
       width; the _p-suffix functions pause until the I/O completes.

       They  are  primarily  designed for internal kernel use, but can be used
       from user space.

       You must compile with -O or -O2 or similar.  The functions are  defined
       as  inline  macros, and will not be substituted in without optimization
       enabled, causing unresolved references at link time.

       You use ioperm(2) or alternatively iopl(2) to tell the kernel to	 allow
       the  user space application to access the I/O ports in question.	 Fail‐
       ure to do this will cause the application  to  receive  a  segmentation
       fault.

CONFORMING TO
       outb() and friends are hardware-specific.  The value argument is passed
       first and the port argument is passed second,  which  is	 the  opposite
       order from most DOS implementations.

SEE ALSO
       ioperm(2), iopl(2)
