Description massimo.sala.71 2019-11-20 08:54:41 UTC
Sorry to bother you readers, I am new to the freebsd ecosystem.
I google a lot but cannot find any official documentation about hw.acpi.acline and hw.acpi.battery, parameters and values.

Please point me to the docs or to the source code where these sysctl are created.

Moreover: I am writing a small utility, commandline, to check for the battery status.
Where can I ask for volunteers testers?

Best regards, Massimo

'hw.acpi.acline' description is in acpi(4) manual.
The battery related things are lack of documentation.

Some brief description of sysctl can be seen by sysctl -d ${SYSCTLVAL}.

I wrote a man page for battery.
