NAME


menusets.4th - loader dynamic submenu boot module

DESCRIPTION


The file that goes by the name of menusets.4th is a set of commands
designed to add submenu functionality to the dynamic menu system provided
by menu.4th(7). Submenus are managed through a system of carefully named
environment variables. The commands of menusets.4th by themselves are not
enough for most uses. Please refer to the examples below for the most
common situations, and to menu.4th(7) for additional commands.

Before using any of the commands provided in menusets.4th, it must be
included through the command:

include menusets.4th

This line is present in the default /boot/forth/menu-commands.4th file, so
it is not needed (and should not be re-issued) in a normal setup.

The commands provided by it are:

menuset-loadsetnum Takes a single integer on the stack to identify
the menuset environment variables to be
activated (see environment variables below).
menuset-loadinitial If $menuset_initial is set, passes the value to
menuset-loadsetnum. The value must be a number.
menusets-unset Unsets the environment variables associated with
all menusets. Increments starting at 1 and
stops at the first unconfigured menuset. A
menuset is considered configured if the caption
for item 1 is set.

The environment variables that effect its behavior are:

menuset_initial
Number to pass to menuset-loadsetnum when menuset-
loadinitial is called.

menuset_nameN
Used to give a name to a menuset.

When a menuset is NOT given a name (the default), menuset N is comprised of
the following environment variables:

ansisetN_caption[x] -> ansi_caption[x]
ansisetN_caption[x][y] -> ansi_caption[x][y]
menusetN_acpi -> menu_acpi
menusetN_caption[x] -> menu_caption[x]
menusetN_caption[x][y] -> menu_caption[x][y]
menusetN_command[x] -> menu_command[x]
menusetN_init -> "evaluated"
menusetN_init[x] -> menu_init[x]
menusetN_keycode[x] -> menu_keycode[x]
menusetN_options -> menu_options
menusetN_optionstext -> menu_optionstext
menusetN_reboot -> menu_reboot
toggledsetN_ansi[x] -> toggled_ansi[x]
toggledsetN_text[x] -> toggled_text[x]

When you choose to give a menuset a name (by setting $menuset_nameN),
menuset N is instead comprised of the following environment variables:

NAMEansi_caption[x] -> ansi_caption[x]
NAMEansi_caption[x][y] -> ansi_caption[x][y]
NAMEmenu_acpi -> menu_acpi
NAMEmenu_caption[x] -> menu_caption[x]
NAMEmenu_caption[x][y] -> menu_caption[x][y]
NAMEmenu_command[x] -> menu_command[x]
NAMEmenu_init -> "evaluated"
NAMEmenu_init[x] -> menu_init[x]
NAMEmenu_keycode[x] -> menu_keycode[x]
NAMEmenu_options -> menu_options
NAMEmenu_optionstext -> menu_optionstext
NAMEmenu_reboot -> menu_reboot
NAMEtoggled_ansi[x] -> toggled_ansi[x]
NAMEtoggled_text[x] -> toggled_text[x]

where "NAME" is the value of $menuset_nameN. In the case of $NAMEmenu_init
($menusetN_init when $menuset_nameN is unset), the value is evaluated as an
FICL statement. This can be used to dynamically adjust the menuset
variables right before the menu is activated.

In addition, menusets.4th provides the following FICL words:

menuset-checksetnum (N --)
Given a single integer on the stack, sets a global variable
menuset_use_name to a boolean based on whether
$menuset_nameN is set (true) or not (false). Also sets
$affix temporary variable (prefix or infix depending on
menuset_use_name). Automatically called by menuset-
loadsetnum and menusets-unset.
menuset-loadvar (--)
Used indirectly to shorten syntax and mitigate dictionary
size. Requires the following temporary environment
variables:

type should be set to one of: menu toggled ansi
var should be set to one of: caption command
keycode text ...
affix either a prefix (menuset_use_name is true) or
infix (menuset_use_name is false)

If the global menuset_use_name is true, the variable
${type}_${var} is made to equal the value of the variable
${affix}${type}_${var} (note: in this case menuset-
checksetnum has set $affix to $menuset_nameN). Otherwise
(when menuset_use_name is false), the variable
${type}_${var} is made to equal the value of the variable
${type}set${affix}_${var} (note: in this case menuset-
checksetnum has set $affix to N).

Both the global variable menuset_use_name and the
environment variable $affix are automatically handled by
menuset-checksetnum above (which is automatically called by
menuset-loadsetnum).
menuset-unloadvar (--)
Used indirectly to shorten syntax and mitigate dictionary
size. Like menuset-loadvar except it unsets the menuset
variable. If global menuset_use_name is true ($affix is
$menuset_nameN), variable ${affix}${type}_${var} is unset.
Otherwise, $affix is N and variable
${type}set${affix}_${var} is unset.
menuset-loadmenuvar (--)
Sets $type to "menu" and calls menuset-loadvar.
menuset-unloadmenuvar (--)
Sets $type to "menu" and calls menuset-unloadvar.
menuset-loadxvar (--)
Like menuset-loadvar except it takes an additional temporary
variable $x. If the global menuset_use_name is true (making
$affix equal $menuset_nameN), sets variable
${type}_${var}[${x}] to variable
${affix}${type}_${var}[${x}]. Otherwise ($affix being N),
sets the same variable to instead
${type}set{affix}_${var}[${x}].
menuset-unloadxvar (--)
Like menuset-loadxvar except it unsets the menuset variable.
If global menuset_use_name is true, unsets
${affix}${type}_${var}[${x}]. Otherwise, unsets
${type}set${affix}_${var}[${x}].
menuset-loadansixvar (--)
Sets $type to "ansi" and calls menuset-loadxvar
menuset-unloadansixvar (--)
Sets $type to "ansi" and calls menuset-unloadxvar
menuset-loadmenuxvar (--)
Sets $type to "ansi" and calls menuset-loadxvar
menuset-unloadmenuxvar (--)
Sets $type to "ansi" and calls menuset-unloadxvar
menuset-loadtoggledxvar (--)
Sets $type to "toggled" and calls menuset-loadxvar
menuset-unloadtoggledxvar (--)
Sets $type to "toggled" and calls menuset-unloadxvar
menuset-loadxyvar (--)
Like menuset-loadxvar except it takes an additional
temporary variable $y. If the global menuset_use_name is
true ($affix is $menuset_nameN), sets variable
${type}_${var}[${x}][${y}] to
${affix}${type}_${var}[${x}][${y}]. Otherwise ($affix is N)
sets the same variable to instead
${type}set${affix}_${var}[${x}][${y}].
menuset-unloadxyvar (--)
Like menuset-loadxyvar except it unsets the menuset
variable. If the global menuset_use_name is true, unsets
${affix}${type}_${var}[${x}][${y}]. Otherwise, unsets
${type}set${affix}_${var}[${x}][${y}].
menuset-loadansixyvar (--)
Sets $type to "ansi" and calls menuset-loadxyvar.
menuset-unloadansixyvar (--)
Sets $type to "ansi" and calls menuset-unloadxyvar.
menuset-loadmenuxyvar (--)
Sets $type to "menu" and calls menuset-loadxyvar.
menuset-unloadmenuxyvar (--)
Sets $type to "menu" and calls menuset-unloadxyvar.
menuset-setnum-namevar (N -- C-Addr/U)
Takes a single integer on the stack and replaces it with a
string (in c-addr/u format) whose value is "menuset_nameN".
For example, if given 1 returns "menuset_name1".
menuset-cleanup (N --)
Unsets all the various temporary variables, currently type,
var, x, y, and affix.

For all values of "x" above, use any number between 1 through 9. Sorry,
double-digits are not currently supported. For all values of "N" above,
use any number between 1 and 65535.
