XPACmdAdd(3) add a command to an XPA command public access point


#include <xpa.h>
XPACmd XPACmdAdd(XPA xpa, char *name, char *help,
int (*send_callback)(),
void *send_data, char *send_mode,
int (*rec_callback)(),
void *rec_data, char *rec_mode);


Add a command to an XPA command access point. The XPA argument specifies the XPA struct returned by a call to XPANewCmd(). The name argument is the name of the command. The other arguments function identically to the arguments in the XPANew() command, i.e., the send_callback and rec_callback routines have identical calling sequences to their XPANew() counterparts, with the exceptions noted below.

When help is requested for a command access point using:

  xpaget -h class:name

all of the command help strings are listed. To get help for a given command, use:

  xpaget -h class:name cmd

Also, the acl keyword in the send_mode and receive_mode strings is global to the access point, not local to the command. Thus, the value for the acl mode should be the same in all send_mode (or receive_mode) strings for each command in a command access point. (The acl for send_mode need not be the same as the acl for receive_mode, though).
