>>> from pyprocdev import *
>>> procdev = ProcDev()
>>> procdev.majors(DeviceTypes.BLOCK)
[8, 9, 11, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 253, 254, 259]
>>> procdev.majors(DeviceTypes.CHARACTER)
[1, 4, 5, 7, 10, 13, 14, 21, 29, 99, 116, 128, 136, 162, 166, 180, 188, 189, 202, 203, 226, 244, 245, 246, 247, 248, 249, 250, 251, 252, 253, 254]
>>> procdev.drivers(DeviceTypes.BLOCK)
frozenset(['md', 'sr', 'device-mapper', 'blkext', 'mdp', 'sd'])
>>> procdev.get_driver(DeviceTypes.BLOCK, 8)
'sd'
>>> procdev.get_majors(DeviceTypes.BLOCK, 'sd')
[8, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135]
