This interface provides procedures to start performance tools with
a very low-level communication channel.
TYPE Handle = INTEGER;
PROCEDURE Start (param: TEXT; VAR w: Handle): BOOLEAN;
If the Modula runtime parameter
param is not set, return
Otherwise, use the value of that parameter to determine the name
of the program to start. If the value of the parameters is
param is used as its value. Start the program and wait until
it writes a byte on its stdout file. If everything succeeds, return
TRUE and set
w to a handle connected to the tool's stdin file.
PROCEDURE Close (w: Handle);
Makes a good effort attempt to shutdown the connection to the
tool attached to
w. The result of reusing a closed handle is
PROCEDURE Send (w: Handle; at: ADDRESS; len: CARDINAL): BOOLEAN;
len bytes of data beginning at address
at to the
monitoring tool connected to handle
the operation was successful. This routine must be called
from within a runtime critical section.
