ConsoleMessage(8)					    BSD System Manager's Manual 					 ConsoleMessage(8)

NAME
ConsoleMessage -- Send a message to SystemStarter SYNOPSIS
ConsoleMessage [-v] message ConsoleMessage [-v] -S ConsoleMessage [-v] -F ConsoleMessage [-v] -s service ConsoleMessage [-v] -f service ConsoleMessage [-v] -q setting ConsoleMessage [-v] -b path ConsoleMessage [-v] -u DESCRIPTION
The ConsoleMessage utility may be used by startup item scripts to send messages to SystemStarter (see SystemStarter(8)). The default behavior is to send the specified message to SystemStarter to be displayed on the console. SystemStarter will attempt to local- ize the string using the current startup item's localization dictionaries. ConsoleMessage may also be used to give feedback to SystemStarter indicating which services provided by the startup item have succeeded or failed. OPTIONS
-v verbose mode (prints errors to stdout) -S mark all services provided by this item as successful -F mark all services provided by this item as failed -s mark the service as successful -f mark the service as failed -q query SystemStarter for the value of the configuration variable setting (result will be printed to stdout). -b Tell SystemStarter to load the display bundle at the specified path -u Tell SystemStarter to unload the current display bundle NOTES
When a service name is not specified, ConsoleMessage assumes its parent process identification (see getppid(2)) is that of a startup item script, and uses that token to find the correct list of services provided by the current item. If the process calling ConsoleMessage is not a startup item script, it is necessary to explicitly provide service names. SEE ALSO
SystemStarter(8) http://www.opensource.apple.com/projects/documentation/howto/html/SystemStarter_HOWTO.html HISTORY
The ConsoleMessage utility appeared in Darwin 6.0 Darwin April 12, 2002 Darwin
