     sdpquery -- SDP query utility

     sdpquery -h
     sdpquery [-d device] -a address command [parameters ...]
     sdpquery [-c path] -l command [parameters ...]

     The sdpquery utility attempts to query the specified Service Discovery
     Protocol (SDP) server.  Remote SDP servers are identified by their
     address.  Connection to the local SDP server is made via the control
     socket.  The sdpquery utility uses Service Search Attribute Requests and
     prints results to standard output and error messages to standard error.

     The options are as follows:

     -a address  Connect to the remote device with the specified address.  The
                 address can be specified as BD_ADDR or a name.  If a name was
                 specified, the sdpquery utility attempts to resolve the name
                 via bt_gethostbyname(3).  If no remote address is given,
                 sdpquery attempts to contact a local SDP server via the con-
                 trol socket.

     -c path     Specify path to the control socket.  The default path is

     -d device   Connect from the local device with the specifed address.  The
                 device can be specified by BD_ADDR or device name.  See
                 btconfig(8) for a list of devices available.  If no device is
                 specified, the sdpquery utility will use the best available.

     -l          Query the local SDP server via the control socket.

     -h          Display usage message and exit.

     The currently supported commands in sdpquery are:

     Browse [group]  Browse for services.  The group parameter is a 16-bit
                     UUID of the group to browse.  If omitted, the Public
                     Browse Group. is used.

     Search service  Search for the service.  The service parameter is a
                     16-bit UUID of the service to search for.  For the fol-
                     lowing services it is possible to use service name
                     instead of service UUID:

                     HID           Human Interface Device
                     HF            Handsfree
                     HSET          Headset
                     LAN           LAN Access Using PPP
                     NAP           Network Access Point
                     OPUSH         OBEX Object Push
                     PANU          Personal Area Networking User
                     SP            Serial Port

     The sdpquery utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

     The sdpquery command first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3 as sdpcontrol.  It was
     ported to NetBSD 4.0 under its present name by Iain Hibbert under the
     sponsorship of Itronix, Inc.
