8.5.2. Opening and Closing Services
The claim_service command directs System Console to start using a particular service instance, and with no additional arguments, claims a service instance for exclusive use.
Opening a Service
set service_type "master" set claim_path [claim_service $service_type $master_path mylib];#Claims service.
You can pass additional arguments to the claim_service command to direct System Console to start accessing a particular portion of a service instance. For example, if you use the master service to access memory, then use claim_service to only access the address space between 0x0 and 0x1000. System Console then allows other users to access other memory ranges, and denies access to the claimed memory range. The claim_service command returns a newly created service path that you can use to access your claimed resources.
You can access a service after you open it. When you finish accessing a service instance, use the close_service command to direct System Console to make this resource available to other users.
Closing a Service
close_service master $claim_path; #Closes the service.
