      modinfo — program to show information about a Linux Kernel module


      modinfo [-0]  [-F field]  [modulename|filename ...]
      modinfo -V
      modinfo -h


      modinfo  extracts  information  the  Linux  Kernel  modules  given on the command line.  If the module name is not a filename, then the /lib/mod-
      ules/version       directory is searched, as done by modprobe(8).
      modinfo by default lists each attribute of the module in form fieldname : value, for easy reading.  The filename is listed the same way (although
      it’s not really an attribute).
      This version of modinfo can understand modules of any Linux Kernel architecture.


      -V --version
                Print the modinfo version.  Note BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY below: you might be printing the version of modinfo.old.
      -F --field
                Only  print  this  field value, one per line.  This is most useful for scripts.  Field names are case-insenitive.  Common fields (which
                may not be in every module) include author, description, license, param, depends, and alias.  There are often multiple param, alias and
                depends        fields.  The special field filename          lists the filename of the module.
      -0 --null Use  the  ASCII zero character to separate field values, instead of a new line.  This is useful for scripts, since a new line can theo-
                retically appear inside a field.
      -a -d -l -p -n
                These are shortcuts for author, description, license.  param and filename respectively, to ease the transition from  the  old  modutils
