ON_AC_POWER(1)              General Commands Manual             ON_AC_POWER(1)

NAME
       on_ac_power - test whether computer is running on AC power

SYNOPSIS
       on_ac_power

DESCRIPTION
       on_ac_power  checks  whether  the  system  is running on abundant power
       (such as AC mains, an USB charger, etc), as opposed to battery power.

OPTIONS
       None.

EXIT STATUS
       0 (true)  System is on mains power
       1 (false) System is not on mains power
       255 (false)    Power status could not be determined

CAVEATS
       The vast majority of desktops and servers have no power  sensors,  thus
       they  return  255  "unknown";  for most purposes you'd want to consider
       this answer to imply mains power -- note that 255  evaluates  as  false
       for the shell.

       This  program  currently provides only information known to the kernel;
       it doesn't (yet?) query userspace daemons such as nut which may provide
       further information.
