rfkill lists, enabling and disabling wireless devices.
The command "list" output format is deprecated and maintained for
backward compatibility only. The new output format is the default
when no command is specified or when the option --output is used.
The default output is subject to change. So whenever possible,
you should avoid using default outputs in your scripts. Always
explicitly define expected columns by using the --output option
together with a columns list in environments where a stable
output is required.
Use JSON output format.
Do not print a header line.
Specify which output columns to print. Use --help to get
a list of available columns.
Output all available columns.
Use the raw output format.
--help Display help text and exit.
Display version information and exit.
help Display help text and exit.
event Listen for rfkill events and display them on stdout.
list [id|type ...]
List the current state of all available devices. The
command output format is deprecated, see the section
DESCRIPTION. It is a good idea to check with list command
id or type scope is appropriate before setting block or
unblock. Special all type string will match everything.
Use of multiple id or type arguments is supported.
block id|type [...]
Disable the corresponding device.
unblock id|type [...]
Enable the corresponding device. If the device is
hard-blocked, for example via a hardware switch, it will
remain unavailable though it is now soft-unblocked.
