DESCRIPTION
       hal-get-property finds device object in the HAL device database by
       looking at device properties. For more information about both the big
       picture and specific HAL properties, refer to the HAL spec which can be
       found in /usr/local/share/doc/hal/spec/hal-spec.html depending on the
       distribution.

       --key  The name of the property.

       --string

       --help Print out usage.

       --version
              Print the version.


RETURN VALUE
       If devices matching the given property are found each UDI (Unique Device
       Identifier) is printed on stdout and the program exits with exit code 0.
       If no devices are found or an error occured, the program exits with a
       non-zero exit code.


BUGS
       Please send bug reports to either the distribution or the HAL mailing
       list, see http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/hal on how to
