CH(4)                   NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                  CH(4)

NAME
     ch -- SCSI media changer driver

SYNOPSIS
     ch* at scsibus? target ? lun ?

DESCRIPTION
     The ch driver is essentially an ioctl(2) interface to a robot on a SCSI
     bus - a device that will change media (e.g. tapes, CD-ROMs, etc) in and
     out of drives for that media.  The chio(1) utility program uses this
     interface to manipulate such robots.

FILES
