NAME

realksh.c - A shell for running Kernel-mode C code  

SYNOPSIS

realksh.c  

DESCRIPTION

realksh.c is an interactive shell that runs C source code. A line of input is handled as a line in module_init() function, and the resulting C code is compiled to build a kernel module. The module is then inserted into the kernel, and removed from the kernel. kernel message output prepended with KMSG: is copied to standard out for convenience, so that functions like printk can be used for easy debugging.

If a line starting with # such as #include <stdio.h> is entered, it is added to every code after that at the start of sourcecode.

The list of such lines can be seen with ##

 

EXAMPLES

The following is an example session

$ sudo ./realksh.c
REAL ksh: printk ("hello\n");
  Building modules, stage 2.
KMSG: <4>hello

REAL ksh: printk ("%x\n", mfmsr());
  Building modules, stage 2.
KMSG: <4>9032

REAL ksh: printk ("%x\n", mfspr(SPRN_MMCR0));
  Building modules, stage 2.
KMSG: <4>0

REAL ksh:
