pccardctl - PCMCIA card control utility
pccardctl [-V] command [socket]
pccardctl is used to monitor and control the state of PCMCIA
sockets. If a socket number is specified, the command will be applied
to just one socket; otherwise, all sockets will be affected.
If pccardctl is executed by root, all commands are available. If
it is executed by an unpriviledged user, only the informational
commands are accessible.
