Ioctls


Hi All,

I am interested in Linux kernel programming. Right now i am studying about interrupt handling. I have a question.

Are IOCTLS a way to handle software interrupts?

Under what situation we use request_irq/free_irq?

Any information regarding this will be appreciated?

Thanks.

The best I can suggest is to read "Linux device driver"
