Command tcl.addbi.unix Verb: Access/Unix
Applicable release versions: AP/Unix
Category Unix (24)
Description extends the functionalities of the Pick Monitor by making new C functions available to Pick/BASIC.

"addbi" adds the user-defined built-in functions defined in the given "function" to the Monitor.

If a list of functions is omitted from the command line, then a list is presumed active. If no list is active, the User Generic Monitor library "libgmu.a" is simply rebuilt to match the list of built-in functions.

Up to 128 user-defined functions can be added to the Monitor.

Built-in functions are defined in the item "user.builtin" in the "dm,messages," file. "addbi" updates this item and creates, in the current directory, the C module "px_user.c" which is compiled and linked with the default Generic Monitor libraries to create a customized Monitor. Added functions can be called directly from BASIC.

User-defined built-in functions may be removed using the "rmbi" command.
Syntax addbi {function {function} ...}
