libsmbios aims towards providing access to as much BIOS information as
possible. It does this by providing a library of functions that can be used
as well as sample binaries.
It incorporates extensible access to SMBIOS information capabilities and
ability to perform unit tests across multiple systems without using physical
hardware. Moreover, centralized, data-driven exception handling for broken
BIOS tables is provided. Currently, full access to the SMBIOS table and its
items is implemented. Additionally, access and manipulation of Dell Indexed
IO Token (type 0xD4) is implemented. This token is a vendor-extention
SMBIOS structure which allows uniform access to manipulate the system CMOS
to enable, disable, or otherwise manipulate normal BIOS functions or features.
