-C --context-attr
Read and Write IIO Context attributes
-D --debug-attr

-S, --scan
Scan for available IIO contexts, optional arg of specific backend(s) 'ip', 'usb' or 'ip,usb'. Specific options for USB include Vendor ID, Product ID to limit scanning to specific devices 'usb=0456:b673'. vid,pid are hexadecimal numbers (no prefix needed), "*" (match any for pid only) If no argument is given, it checks all that are availble.
-h, --help

normally returned from iio_info -s or iio_attr -S
usb:
blank, if there is only one IIO device plugged into USB, find it, and attach to it.
serial:[port],[baud],[config]
serial configuration, serial:/dev/ttyUSB0,115200,8n1 115200 baud, 8 data bits, no partity, one stop bit
local:
with no address part
-i, --input-channel
Filters channels by input channels only
-o, --output-channel
Filters channels by output channels only
-s, --scan-channel
Filters channels by scan channels only
-I, --ignore-case
When pattern matching devices, channels or attributes, ignore case
-g, --generate-code <arg>
