Original Book Contents
The character device is the simplest of all Linux devices, and it inputs and outputs data in character unit when processing data in the device, and there is no intermediate buffer.
The "/dev" file is created with "mknod" command. Once created, it is maintained regardless of the existence of the actual device. Therefore, even if the device does not actually exist, the "/dev" file may be created. Linux can open, read, and write these block devices using standard system functions as if it were a single file in other programs.
The device name is defined in the format of <device type> + <device number>:
■ Device type
For example, "console" is defined as "tty". The device type will be discussed further below.
■ Device number
The device numbers are given in the order of 0, 1, 2, 3... according to the order in which they are installed by the same device type. For example, "tty0" means the first device 0 installed with the console "tty" type.
