udev-device record accessors

[procedure] udev-device?
[procedure] udev-device-node
[procedure] udev-device-type
[procedure] udev-device-subsystem
[procedure] udev-device-action
[procedure] udev-device-syspath
[procedure] udev-device-sysname
[procedure] udev-device-sysnum
[procedure] udev-device-driver
[procedure] udev-device-properties

Accessors for udev-device records.

Listing devices

[procedure] (udev-list-devices)

Return a list of devices identified by udev, represented by udev-device records.

Monitoring

[procedure] (udev-monitor-start dispatcher #!key (polling-interval 0.2))

Start the udev monitor thread. dispatcher is a one-argument procedure that is is given an udev-device record for each udev event.

This procedure creates an srfi-18 thread which polls udev in polling-interval seconds.

[procedure] (udev-monitor-stop! monitor)

Stop the udev monitor thread.

Example:
(use udev)

(define (mountable-device? dev)
  (and (equal? (udev-device-type dev) "partition")
       (equal? (udev-device-subsystem dev) "block")))

(define (dispatcher dev)
  (let ((node (udev-device-node dev))
        (action (udev-device-action dev)))
    (when (mountable-device? dev)
      (cond ((equal? action "add")
             (print "Mounting " node))
            ((equal? action "remove")
             (print "Unmounting " node))))))

(thread-join! (udev-monitor-start dispatcher))

Miscellaneous

[procedure] (udev-device-parent-with-subsystem-devtype dev subsystem devtype)

Find the next parent device, with a matching subsystem and devtype value, and fill in information from the sys device and the udev database entry (from the original documentation).

dev is an udev-device record. subsystem and devtype are strings. Returns a udev-device record.

[procedure] (make-udev-device node subsystem type action syspath sysname sysnum driver properties)

Create a udev-device record. This procedure is usually only useful for mocking udev devices.
