NAME
       mk_cmds - error table compiler

SYNOPSIS
       mk_cmds file

DESCRIPTION
       Mk_cmds converts	a table	listing	command	names and associated help mes-
       sages 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  con-
       sists of	a declaration supplying	the name of the	command	table:

       command_table name

       followed	by entries of the form:

       [ request | unimplemented ] name, " string "[, abbrev]...;

       and a final

       end

       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.

BUGS
       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.
