mk_cmds - error table compiler
converts a table listing command names and associated help
messages into a C source file suitable for use with the ss
The source file name must end with a suffix of ``.ct''; the file consists of a
declaration supplying the name of the command table:
followed by entries of the form:
and a final
to indicate the end of the table.
A C source file is generated which should be compiled and linked with the object
files use the ss library.
A ``#'' in the source file is treated as a comment character, and all remaining
text to the end of the source line will be ignored.
Since the original mk_cmds
uses a very simple parser based on
(1), and this current version of mk_cmds
uses an awk/sed
combination of scripts, its error recovery leaves much to be desired.
