NAME

     DB_COMMAND, DB_SHOW_COMMAND, DB_SHOW_ALL_COMMAND -- Extends the ddb
     command set.

SYNOPSIS

     #include <ddb/ddb.h>

     DB_COMMAND(command_name, command_function);

     DB_SHOW_COMMAND(command_name, command_function);

     DB_SHOW_ALL_COMMAND(command_name, command_function);

DESCRIPTION

     The DB_COMMAND() macro adds command_name to the list of top-level
     commands.  Invoking command_name from ddb will call command_function.

     The DB_SHOW_COMMAND() and DB_SHOW_ALL_COMMAND() are roughly equivalent to
     DB_COMMAND() but in these cases, command_name is a sub-command of the ddb
     show command and show all command, respectively.

     The general command syntax: command[/modifier] address[,count],
     translates into the following parameters for command_function:

     addr          The address passed to the command as an argument.

     have_addr     A boolean value that is true if the addr field is valid.

     count         The number of quad words starting at offset addr that the
                   command must process.

     modif         A pointer to the string of modifiers. That is, a series of
                   symbols used to pass some options to the command. For
                   example, the examine command will display words in decimal
                   form if it is passed the modifier "d".

EXAMPLE

     In your module, the command is declared as:

     DB_COMMAND(mycmd, my_cmd_func)
     {
             if (have_addr)
                     db_printf("Calling my command with address %p\n", addr);
     }

     Then, when in ddb:

     db> mycmd 0x1000
     Calling my command with address 0x1000
     db>
