       modinfo [-0]  [-F field]  [module ...]

       modinfo -V

       modinfo -h


       modinfo extracts  information  the  Linux  Kernel  modules
       given  on  the  command line.  If the module name is not a
       filename, then the /lib/modules/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.

       This version of modinfo  can  understand  modules  of  any
       Linux Kernel architecture.


       -V --version
                 Print  the modinfo version.  Note BACKWARDS COM­
                 PATIBILITY below: you might be printing the ver­
                 sion of modinfo.old.

       -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,  param,  depends, and alias.  There are
                 often multiple param, alias and depends  fields.

       -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
                 These are  shortcuts  for  author,  description,
                 license      and param respectively, to ease the
                 transition from the old modutils modinfo.


       This version of modinfo is for kernel modules  2.5.48  and


       modprobe(8), modinfo.old(8)
