hal-get-property retrieves a property from a device object in the HAL device database. For more information about both the big picture and specific HAL properties, refer to the HAL spec which can be found in /usr/share/doc/hal-doc/spec/hal-spec.html depending on the distribution.
If both the property and device object exists the value of the property is printed on stdout and the program will exit with exit code 0. Otherwise the exit code will be non-zero.
Please send bug reports to either the distribution or the HAL mailing list, see http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/hal on how to subscribe.
