I remember long ago reading ( I believe on these very pages) that ioctl() was considered a bit skanky, and really people should be making devices that just need read() & write().
And if one of them has another meaning already, a separate control device should be created.
That way echo & friends can be used to test/use all this functionality...
What happened to this idea?
