I am trying to understand /proc/apm but I can't seem to find sufficient
documentation on it. Specially, I looking for the meaning of the four
hex values in the middle of it.
$ cat /proc/apm
1.13 1.2 0x02 0x01 0x00 0x01 99% -1 min
The first item is the driver version number, the second is the bios
version. The last three are, respectively, the percentage left of
battery power, the time left, and the units the time is measured in.
But I can't find the meaning of the four intermediate values. Can
anyone point me to the documentation? Thanks.
