comedi_command_test - test streaming input/output configuration
int comedi_command_test (comedi_t * device, comedi_cmd * command);
The function comedi_command_test() tests the command structure pointed
to by the parameter command and returns an integer describing the
testing stages that were sucessfully passed. In addition, if elements
of the command structure are invalid, they may be modified. Source
elements are modified to remove invalid source triggers. Argument
elements are adjusted or rounded to the nearest valid value.
The meanings of the return value are as follows.
0 indicates a valid command.
1 indicates that one of the *_src members of the command contained an
unsupported trigger. The bits corresponding to the unsupported
triggers are zeroed.
2 indicates that the particular combination of *_src settings is not
supported by the driver, or that one of the *_src members has the bit
corresponding to multiple trigger sources set at the same time.
3 indicates that one of the *_arg members of the command is set outside
the range of allowable values. For instance, an argument for a
TRIG_TIMER source which exceeds the board’s maximum speed. The invalid
*_arg members will be adjusted to valid values.
4 indicates that one of the *_arg members required adjustment. For
instance, the argument of a TRIG_TIMER source may have been rounded to
the nearest timing period supported by the board.
5 indicates that some aspect of the command’s chanlist is unsupported
by the board. For example, some board’s require that all channels in
the chanlist use the same range.
