mk_cmds - error table compiler
Mk_cmds converts a table listing command names and associated help messages into a C
source file suitable for use with the ss(3) library.
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:
[ request | unimplemented ] name, " string "[, abbrev]...;
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 yacc(1), and this current
version of mk_cmds uses an awk/sed combination of scripts, its error recovery leaves much
to be desired.
