VIDIOC_SUBDEV_ENUM_FRAME_INTERVAL - Enumerate frame intervals
.. c:function:: int ioctl( int fd, VIDIOC_SUBDEV_ENUM_FRAME_INTERVAL, struct v4l2_subdev_frame_interval_enum * argp )
File descriptor returned by :ref:`open() <func-open>`.
Pointer to struct :c:type:`v4l2_subdev_frame_interval_enum`.
This ioctl lets applications enumerate available frame intervals on a
given sub-device pad. Frame intervals only makes sense for sub-devices
that can control the frame period on their own. This includes, for
instance, image sensors and TV tuners.
For the common use case of image sensors, the frame intervals available
on the sub-device output pad depend on the frame format and size on the
same pad. Applications must thus specify the desired format and size
when enumerating frame intervals.
To enumerate frame intervals applications initialize the ``index``,
``pad``, ``which``, ``code``, ``width`` and ``height`` fields of struct
and call the :ref:`VIDIOC_SUBDEV_ENUM_FRAME_INTERVAL` ioctl with a pointer
to this structure. Drivers fill the rest of the structure or return an
EINVAL error code if one of the input fields is invalid. All frame
intervals are enumerable by beginning at index zero and incrementing by
one until ``EINVAL`` is returned.
Available frame intervals may depend on the current 'try' formats at
other pads of the sub-device, as well as on the current active links.
See :ref:`VIDIOC_SUBDEV_G_FMT` for more
information about the try formats.
Sub-devices that support the frame interval enumeration ioctl should
implemented it on a single pad only. Its behaviour when supported on
multiple pads of the same sub-device is not defined.

Return Value
On success 0 is returned, on error -1 and the ``errno`` variable is set
appropriately. The generic error codes are described at the
:ref:`Generic Error Codes <gen-errors>` chapter.
The struct
``pad`` references a non-existing pad, one of the ``code``,
``width`` or ``height`` fields are invalid for the given pad or the
``index`` field is out of bounds.
