menu facility documentation

I am trying to put together a package for use with pkgadd.
The package is for a driver which can support more than one
adapter card.  Additionally, I want to allow the installer
to be able to be able to choose between available legal
IRQ's, IO Base Address ranges and so forth.  I have used
the request script in the past to do this.  Recently, I
have seen packages that use the request script in combination
with menu's.  The menus are called from within the request
script with a command like

           menu -r -f menu.config -o /tmp/menu.output

Within a particular menu file there are commands such as

I cannot seem to find any information on this facility or
what the various . directives are.

I using both SRV4.0 and Unixware's SRV4.2.  Does anyone
know where I can find more documention on this (book titles
manual titles, man pages??).

Thanks in advance.



1. problems configuring shared memory facility and semaphores facility

I suppose I needs to add this to the FAQ.

Anyway, semaphores aren't loaded until needed.  Ipcs is broken in that
it gives info on whether a system is loaded or not, not whether it
is available.  If you use them, you'll find the semaphores are there.
